ENGLAND'S Ian Poulter won the Australian Masters at Victoria Golf Club as local favourite Geoff Ogilvy faded on Sunday.

Poulter had a final round 67 to cruise to a three-shot victory at 15 under par.

Victorian Marcus Fraser finished second at 12 under following a final round 64 while Ogilvy shot two-over 73 to finish outright third, 11 under the card.
