Ja­son Hak Lands First Pro­fes­sional Win in Yun­nan

HK Golfer - - Divots -

Ja­son Hak streamed to a 10-shot vic­tory at the CGD Yun­nan Cham­pi­onship in Kun­ming on the China Tour. The land­mark win at the 1.35 mil­lion-yuan (HK$1.58 mil­lion) event should see the 23-year-old im­prove on his cur­rent world rank­ing of 1,115. Prior to this win, his best per­for­mance had been a run­ner-up fin­ish at last Septem­ber’s Chongqing Jiang­nan New Town King Run Open.

Hak built on an overnight lead of six shots with a seven-un­der par round that in­cluded nine birdies with just one dou­ble-bo­gey. A pro­fes­sional since 2013, Hak fin­ished the tour­na­ment 22-un­der for one of the most im­pres­sive vic­to­ries on the China Tour.

Hak’s im­pres­sive vic­tory on Sun­day made amends for a frus­trat­ing 11 months since he was in sim­i­lar po­si­tion to take out his maiden vic­tory. He led the Pin­gan Bank Open in Bei­jing by one stroke go­ing into the fi­nal round only to fal­ter and share fourth place.
