Casey wins with five birdies, four bogeys
The tournament, co-sanctioned by the European and Australian tours, was played under a modified Stableford scoring system.
Players received eight points for double-eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey, and minus-three for double-bogey or higher.
Casey had five birdies and four bogeys Sunday to finish with 45 points on the oceanside New South Wales course. The former Arizona State golfer and Pacific-10 Conference champion also won the European tour's 2001 Scottish PGA.
"The first win was tough and I don't know if the second is tougher -- they're all tough,'' Casey said. "This shows the first wasn't a flash in the pan and it probably answers a few critics out there.''
Under normal stroke-play rules, Casey's closing 1-under 71 would have given him a two-stroke victory over Appleby and O'Hern at 17-under 271.
