Pearce wins in nail bitter

Well what a week the VGO has been played and won with the winning Professional being Kiwi Daniel Pearce on 13 under. He won in an enthralling finish.
Having shot a great round of 66 Daniel had to wait and see as the leading groups battled it out down the stretch.
On the 18th tee as the final groups prepared to tee off the committee was gearing up for what looked like a certain playoff with Jason King and Ritchie Caracella both on that score and early leader Andrew Evans needing to birdie the last to force his way into a playoff.
After King and Caracella drove poorly Evans had but wedge in. King chipped out from the trees and played his 3rd to the centre of the green needing a 25 footer to stay in the playoff. Caracella got a lucky beak off the tress and played a great shot to about 30 feet whilst Evans hit his second to 10 feet
King 2 putted for bogey to go out of the playoff and Caracella made a nervous 3 putt to miss his chance. Evans lipped out a birdie chance to leave Pearce alone on top and the winner of the VGO 2014
