Lee Chang-woo claimed the fifth edition of the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship by three strokes at the Nanshan International Golf Club in Shandong province, China.

Lee became the second Korean to win the event after Han Chang-won won the inaugural event in 2009 at Mission Hills Golf Club in southern China.

With the victory, Lee clinched a spot in the 2014 Masters Tournament, in addition to the Open Qualifying Series for The Open Championship, where he would be joined by runner-up Shohei Hasegawa of Japan.

After posting earlier rounds of 70, 72 and 69, Lee started the final day with a slender one-shot advantage over Zecheng Dou. After mixing two birdies and two bogeys over the front nine to turn in a level-par 36, he pulled away from the competition with a superb display of ball-striking that produced birdies at the 12th and 15th.

Although Lee played like a seasoned pro down the final stretch, he admitted to not being able to shed his nerves until his tee shot at the par-3 17th, which he struck to the heart of the green.

“I have been looking at the leader board since the third round and I was a bit nervous,” said Lee. “I just tried to keep calm and it seemed to work. I knew I was going to win after the tee shot on the 17th hole.”
