Spots in the Masters and Open Championship were the bonus rewards for China’s Yuxin Lin when he ran out a three-shot winner of the 2017 Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship at Royal Wellington Golf Club in Wellington, New Zealand. The 17-year-old lefthander returned a 6-under 65 in the final round to take the title. He finished in style, too, birdieing the 17th hole before eagling the 18th.
The Beijing native also impressed in professional starts in 2017. He finished seventh in the Hainan Open on the European Challenge Tour, and 34th in the Asian Tour’s Macao Open.
