  • Shane Lowry's strong final round saw him claim second place at the Hong Kong Open

Australian Wade Ormsby completed a wire-to-wire victory at the Hong Kong Open on Sunday as a final-round 66 lifted the Australian to the title for the second time in three years.

Lowry made birdies at the second, fourth, ninth, 16th and 17th and dropped just one shot by three-putting from long range at the seventh.

United States big-hitter Tony Finau was also six off, shooting a tournament-best 65 but squandering a chance to close the gap on Ormsby after three birdie putts came up just short.

"I am right where I want to be, and I am looking forward to the weekend", Lowry said after a round that included five birdies.

Ormsby started with a bogey but he rallied over the next eight, going out one better than Lowry and leaving the Irishman with serious work to do on the back nine.

"I'm very happy with myself, fair play to Wade, he's run away with it and didn't really give us a chance but I went out there and did as much as I could", Lowry said.

But Williams visibly called on herself to lift near the middle of the set, breaking to level at 3-3. Williams plans to donate her $43,000 prize to relief efforts for the Australian bushfires.

Ormsby birdied the 17th and calmly sunk a short putt at the finish, pumping his fist in the air and swigging a beer in front of a cheering gallery on the 18th green.

Rashid Khan had a seven-under 63 and shares third place - another two shots back - with Australia's Terry Pilkadaris (64), South Korea's Kim Tae-woo (66) and Thailand's Jazz Janewattananond (67).

"Obviously a little salty taste, but that won't last".

The 39-year-old, who led after the first round and never relinquished his advantage, won the Hong Kong Open in 2017.

The Hong Kong Open was initially scheduled to take place at the start of December but it had to be delayed due to the social unrest affecting the city.
