Flawless Shin Cruises in Macau
PGA TOUR Series-China Zhuang Liu
Canada’s Justin Shin won his second career PGA TOUR Series-China title in wire-to-wire fashion and banked the RMB378,000 winner’s cheque at the season-ending Macau Championship. Starting the day six strokes clear of China’s Zecheng Dou after opening rounds of 63-62-66, Shin continued his flawless play to card a 3-under 68. He finished at 25-under and a three-stroke victory at Caesars Golf Macau.
Shin, who played a full season on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2017, had been struggling with his game in China. He came into the week ranked 67th in the Order of Merit and in danger of losing his Tour card for next season. However, a putter change last month followed by two good results on the Korean Tour helped the Canadian regain his confidence.
