denniswarburton2West Australian Dennis Warburton (pictured) has won the inaugural Royal Perth Senior Open.

In a close finish Warburton's rounds of 75-75 for a 36-hole total of 150 were just enough to edge out John Banting (74-77=151) and Neville Delane (80-71-151) by a single stroke.

Banting had held the overnight lead with his opening round of 74 while Warburton was a stroke behind with his score of 75. Neville Delane had the round of the tournament with his closing 71 that saw him almost snatch a dramatic win.
