PING AN BANK CHINA TOUR – PGA TOUR CHINA SERIES VICTORIES (2): 2016 Ping An Private Bank Wanda Open, Putian Open.


Current Year: Finished fourth on the Order of Merit to earn 2017 Web.com Tour membership. Pocketed 578,886. Won once and added two other top-10s...Earning fully exempt status appeared in jeopardy when he shot a 5-over 77 in the third round at the Second Global Qualifying Tournament in Kunming. Rebounded with a strong finish, shooting a 2-under 70 on the final day to T8 with Jake Stirling to earn full members...In his third Ping An Bank China Tour – PGA TOUR China Series start, used a second-round 63, a career-low on this circuit, to T9 at the Cadillac Championship in Chengdu. Finished at 17-under with six other players...Broke through in a big way in early July at the Ping An Private Bank Wanda Open. Took a share of the lead into the final round with New Zealand's Mathew Perry and played stellar golf down the stretch to record his first PGA TOUR China triumph. Missed a makeable birdie putt at No. 17 Sunday that would have given him a two-shot cushion. Came back on the 18th hole clinging to a one-shot lead over Australia's Max McCardle, who had already posted a 9-under score and was sitting in the clubhouse. Nailed his drive down the middle of the fairway then hit his approach to 2 feet for the tap-in birdie and the two-shot win. Shot rounds of 70-69-70 then saved his best round for the final day, a 4-under 68. The victory surged him to No. 3 on the Order of Merit and zoomed him upward more than 1,000 positions, to No. 797 in the Official World Golf Ranking, a career-high...Had a slow start to his Ping An Bank Open, starting the tournament with a 3-over 75. Rallied over his final 54 holes, with scores of 67-67-66 to T8—his fourth top-10 of the campaign...Turned a good season into a great one when he survived difficult conditions at the Putian Open in mid-November. Took the outright lead after shooting a 1-under 71 in the second round and extended his lead to five shots through 54 holes. Wobbled considerably on the fourth hole Sunday, taking a quadruple bogey-9 on the par-5. But nobody could use that to his advantage, and he steadied the ship enough to hold off all challengers. Shot a 5-over 77 on the last day but was still able to outlast Sejun Yoon and Taylor Cooper by four strokes. The victory moved him to No. 4 on the Order of Merit and solidified his position with two tournaments to play. 

2015: Best finish on the Asian Tour was a T23 with three others at the Philippine Open in Manila...Also added a T28 at the Bashundhara Bangladesh Open.

2014: In 12 Asian Tour starts, made only one cut, a 64th-place showing at the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters.
