Michael Sun captures the Kinhiever China Championship at Jinji Lake Golf Club

From September 13th to 16th The Jinji Lake Golf Club hosted the Kinhiever China Championship, first World Amateur Tour event on the Chinese soil.
Only a few days after hosting the PGA Tour Series, the Members Club prepared a wonderful setting for the 4th
 leg of the 2018 World Amateur Tour.

A beautiful ceremony was organized to celebrate the opening and launch of the Tournament sponsored by the Kinhiever Group . 
It was now the time to open the first round of the tournament with perfect weather conditions but very hot temperature. The Chinese players were going to take the lead into that first round with Michael Sun posting a fabulous 37 points just ahead of Kening Chen with 35 points followed by Arnold Ku scoring 34 pts. 

The second round did not lead to much suspense as Michael Sun continued to play very consistent golf. Helped by his perfect knowledge of the course, he was going to play a great round of golf shooting another 36 points Stableford to secure his first victory on the Tour.
Behind him the pressure was at the top with 4 players fighting for the second place. Arnold Ku finally closed his round with a good 32 pts to finish first in the seniors series. Philippe De Nicolay Rothschild played the best  score of the day with 36 points and moved to fourth place just behind Tianbiao Liu winner of the second series.
In the women series South African Lizanne Heydenrych played once again a brilliant golf to overcome Terre Blanche resident Laetitia CHANG.  
The top of the ranking remains the same after the Chinese stop with Jerry SARVADI just a few points ahead of Old Course Cannes Mandelieu resident Christophe GUEDON. Michael SUN joined Dominique Rey and Gregory Pipkin at the third place. No change in the Women Series with Anne-Catherine Robin  and Stéphanie Chapon on top of the ranking.
Next stop will take place in Andalucia Spain at the wonderful La Reserva Golf Club from October 25th to 28th.
