Shenzhen International 2016

Round 5 - Lee Soo-min claims first Tour win

April 25, 2016

Soomin Lee needed to wait it out an extra day in China, but he got his first win.

The Shenzhen International was forced to a Monday finish because of over nine hours of delays in the first four days, and Lee stuck through it all in the end. The South Korean went wire-to-wire at Genzon Golf Club in earning his first European Tour victory.

“I’m really happy and really excited,” Lee said. “This is really good for me and really good for my golf life.”

Lee finished the week at 16 under. He began Monday tied for the lead with five holes to play but used a birdie-eagle run at 16 and 17 on the extra day to put him across the finish line in first. A bogey at the last little mattered, as Lee posted a final-round 71 and was two ahead of the field in the end.

Joost Luiten and Brandon Stone tied for second at 14 under. Scott Hend, who posted a marvelous albatross this week, led a group at 13 under in a tie for fourth. Bubba Watson found his game in the final round with a 66 that moved him to 10 under and a tie for eighth.

Lee was competing in just his sixth European Tour event. He actually finished tied for third in his first European Tour start (last October’s UBS Hong Kong Open). He held the 54-hole lead in his second start, the Maybank Championship Malaysia, but ultimately finished in a tie for second there.

But two months later, he can call himself a European Tour winner. And doesn’t he know it.

“First time European Tour winner in just six events. It was really incredible,” Lee said. “I got a big chance in Malaysia but I didn’t make it because I was really, really nervous. Now I made it.”

Round 4 - Final round postponed by storm

April 24, 2016

Lee Slattery of Britain held a one-stroke lead on Sunday when the final round of the Shenzhen International was postponed due to thunderstorms.

Slattery had turned in a 34 and was on the 10th fairway when Sunday's round was suspended. Overnight leader Lee Soo-min, Alexander Levy and Callum Shinkwin were on the ninth fairway in the final group behind Slattery.

Six hours were lost to bad weather over the first two days and bad light brought an early end to the third day with Lee leading at 14 under after 11 holes.

The players are set to return at 6:30 a.m. on Monday to determine the winner of the second edition of the event in Guangdong.

Round 3 - Lee Soo-min holds on to lead

April 24, 2016

Callum Shinkwin of England shot a 62 to close within two strokes of Lee Soo-min, who still leads after another weather-curtailed day at the Shenzhen International.

After six hours were lost to bad weather over the first two days, bad light brought an early end to the third day with Lee leading at 14-under after 11 holes in the third round.

Lee has yet to bogey and was one-under for the day after rounds of 66 and 65.

Shinkwin was 12-under 204 after eight birdies and an eagle in the third round.

Round 2 - Lee Soo-min opens three shot lead

April 23, 2016

Lee Soo-min shot a 7-under 65 Friday to take a three-stroke lead on the rain-interrupted second day of Shenzhen International.

Lee, who is playing in his sixth European Tour event, recorded seven birdies to get 13-under 131. Joost Luiten (66) was in second place as nearly six hours of play was lost over two separate rain stoppages. Thirty-five players were unable to start their second rounds.

Paul Dunne (69) was six shots behind in third, even with Brandon Stone (70), after three birdies and two bogeys on the front nine and an eagle on the 13th.

Round 1 - Alexander Levy and Lee Soo-min share lead

April 22, 2016

Alexander Levy and Lee Soo-min opened with 6-under 66s and held the first-round lead when play was suspended Thursday at the Shenzhen International.

Levy, the 2014 China Open champion, started with a birdie on the 10th hole and turned in 31 after an eagle on the 17th and a birdie on the 18th. He opened his second nine with another birdie.

Lee had a bogey-free round containing six birdies in his sixth start on the European Tour.

A 45-minute suspension because of lightning in the afternoon resulted in 32 players having to return Friday morning to complete their first rounds.

Raphael Jacquelin, Gary Stal, Eduardo De la Riva, Paul Dunne and Joost Luiten were all at 68 when play was suspended.

Two-time major winner Bubba Watson and defending champion Kiradech Aphibarnrat (71) completed their rounds.
