  • Benjamin Herbert said “That’s golf. What a crazy game,” after his win at the 25th Volvo China Open

Korhonen is looking for his second European Tour win following last year's Shot Clock Masters.

Benjamin Hebert of France carded a "crazy" back nine in 28 shots on Saturday to seize control of the 25th Volvo China Open in Shenzhen as overnight leader Wu Ashun wobbled. Korhonen sunk a birdie putt of his own from 11 feet on the first trip back up the 18th to seal the victory and get his hands on the golden jacket after Hebert could only make par.

The triumph takes him into the world's top 100 and the top 20 on the Race To Dubai standings and means that he will head to Bethpage, New York, for the season's second major in two weeks' time.

"It's an incredible feeling".

Together with Spain's Jorge Campillo, the Finn began his final round at the Genzon Golf Club three shots back of Hebert in a share of second place with the Spaniard. "I was happy to get into a playoff".

"Yes, this is a first time for me but it's what I work for", said Hebert, who rolled in seven birdies and an eagle in a round that simply exploded after a quiet, level-par front nine. "I missed the wedding of one of my cousins this week so it was very important for me to have a good week".

Swarm of bees briefly delays Reds game

Campillo, who won his first European Tour title in his 229th tournament in Morocco last week and led by two strokes after a run of four straight birdies around the turn on Sunday, finished alone in third on 19-under. "It was a battle all day as everyone was making putts, and I had to stay patient and do the same".

Campillo started the round brilliantly as three consecutive birdies from the 10th hole took him into the lead.

"It was disappointing. I finished as a champion last week, but I didn't this week", said Campillo, who will move into second in the Race to Dubai standings after an wonderful run of five top-three finishes in his past six events. "But if Benjamin plays like he did today, then it's tough".

Home favourite Li Haotong finished three further back to seal fourth and 175 Race to Dubai points.

The top 50 players in the Race to Dubai Rankings will contest the season-ending US$8million DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai from November 21-24 where US$3 million will be up for grabs for the victor, making it the richest prize in world tournament golf. "It's great to see Kuang Yang, who's only 14, making the cut and it's wonderful to see these juniors making Chinese people proud".
