Today the official signing ceremony for the 2015 Volvo China Open took place in Shanghai, underlining the fact that the national open has now entered its third decade, and that Volvo’s commitment to the Chinese market is stronger than ever.
China’s true, open championship will be played for the 21st time in the heart of Shanghai City from April 23rd-26th. In keeping with the ‘open’ principle of sharing the championship with venues right across the nation, this will be the first time that the tournament has been staged at the famous Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club.
Jin Cheng claimed victory in the boys’ senior group final at Lion Lake Country Club today with a commanding performance over 2012 champion Bai Zheng-kai. His excellent victory means that he qualifies for a spot in the 2015 Volvo China Open on the European Tour which will be played next Spring.
Bai Zheng-kai had to endure 19 holes to win his quarter-final match against Sun Zhuang-zhu in this morning’s match, and then had to survive another 20 holes in his semi-final against last year’s runner up Yang Yi-nong.
