Rumford Clinches Second Win in Eight Days at Golf’s China Open

May 05, 2013

Australia’s Brett Rumford clinched a second win in eight days with victory in golf’s China Open today.

Rumford, 35, who won the Ballantine’s Championship in South Korea last weekend, had a final-round 68, 4-under par, to finish on 16-under at Binhai Lake Golf Club. He won by four strokes from Mikko Ilonen of Finland.

It was Rumford’s fifth win on the European Tour and the winner’s check for 407,900 euros ($535,000) takes him to the top of the Race to Dubai standings.

“As with last week, I am kind of speechless at the moment, it’s quite surreal,” Rumford told Sky Sports. “It’s really hard to try and go back-to-back, it’s the first time I’ve actually played the week after a win so I am more than pleased. It’s quite a feat, it’s very special.”

Chinese 12-year-old Ye Wocheng, who became the youngest golfer to play a European Tour event, missed the cut after two rounds of 79.
