NAIROBI, Kenya (Reuters) — On Sunday, China’s Ashun Wu scored a 6-under 65 in the final round to easily fight off a three-player chase pack and win the Magical Kenya Open by four strokes.
Despite starting the final day four strokes behind the leader, Wu completed each of his rounds under par to finish on 16-under 268 and coast to victory at the Muthaiga Golf Club.
“Winning a title today is a fantastic feeling.” “Today was quite difficult; I played exceptionally well and scored seven birdies,” Wu said on the DP World Tour website.
Aaron Cockerill (67), Thriston Lawrence (66), and Hurly Long (66) tied for second place but did not really challenge for the lead.
David Horsey (69) was unable to repeat his performance from the third round, when he shot 65, and completed the tournament in fifth place, a shot behind the leaders.
