Cheng JinJIAXING, China (PGA TOUR) — Amateur Cheng Jin, who had come close to winning in his previous PGA TOUR China start, didn't let a second chance slip away. Jin made a late birdie at the Nine Dragons Open and watched as Lucas Lee, who had led for most of the final round, finished with three consecutive bogeys. That opened the door to history as Jin became the first amateur to win a PGA TOUR China event. He defeated Sam Chien by a shot.

"I'm just so excited. I didn't really think about winning before the week, but I played really well; especially my putting," said Jin, who turned 16 in March. "This really gave me a lot of confidence and is a turning point for myself and for my future in golf."

That would be his oldest daughter, who just turned 4.
