Ashun said: “It's a very good feeling today to win this championship. It was very tough today, I played very well today and made seven birdies.

“I was four shots behind and still playing to my plan. Five under was my goal and after ten holes I had a good feeling, and I told myself I'll keep playing and make a couple of birdies and it's fine.

"A lot of Chinese people came to support me and I was happy to see them. It's going to be a big celebration with my family here in Kenya with me, I'm so happy.”

Also on form in Africa were David Horsey, who ended the week in fifth, and 17th-placed Espen Kofstad.

On the Challenge Tour, Mitch Waite was tied for 10th at the Mangaung Open, with Clement Sordet 18th and Mateusz Gradecki 33rd.

Darren Clarke shared 15th at the Hoag Classic on the Champions Tour.
