Wang Jeung-hun wins Mauritius Open for back-to-back titles

May 15, 2016

BEAU CHAMPS, Mauritius (AP) Wang Jeung-hun became the first back-to-back winner on the European Tour in two years after overtaking Siddikur Rahman on the last hole Sunday for a one-shot victory at the Mauritius Open.

Wang, champion at the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco last weekend, is the first player to win two straight titles on the tour since Rory McIlroy in 2014.

He finished on 6-under 282 after a birdie on the last hole clinched the title.

Victory seemed unlikely for the South Korean when overnight leader Rahman held a three-shot lead on No. 16 at Four Seasons Golf Club. But Rahman made double-bogey and then bogey and could only manage a par on the last.


The 20-year-old Wang also became the first Asian player to win back-to-back on the European Tour.
