2017-08-21Pumping the fist after the birdie in the final hole, Shun Yat Hak issued a declaration that his era had come in China Tour. He won the CGD Jialize Yunnan Championship for his first title in the Tour with a convincing fashion.
If not making a double bogey in the ferocious 4th hole, the HK boy would make more impressive historical remark in the final round, his 9 birdies and -7 score pushed his total to -22, with the victory margin being 10 strokes, the accomplishment only matched by Korean Jeunghun Wang in this tour’s maiden event back to April 2014.

Shun Yat will keep his momentum on check when the Tour hit a 3-week break until the third week of September, when China Tour resumes in Beijing.
The only competitior to Shun Yat in first 3 rounds, the Korean Jaewon Lee had a dissapointed final round when he droped into tied 6th place by a score of 73. the Aussi Austin Bautista had the second best round -6 and put himself into a solo 3rd poition. The runner up belonged to New Zealander Mathew Perry, who fired a -4 on the way to his total -12 score.
