Kiwi golfer Josh Geary has romped to a seven-shot victory on the China Golf Tour.

It was Geary’s second tournament win at the Yulongwan Yunnan Open after also claiming the title in 2015.

Geary has been a regular on the PGA Tour China before the circuit was taken over by the China Golf Association this year, and this was his fourth tour win.

He excelled all week and finished with a four-round tally of 259, 25 under par after shooting 66-63-66-64. Starting the final round four shots ahead of the same player he beat in 2015, Thailand’s Gunn Charoenkul, Geary made seven birdies and no bogeys in his final round.
