24 May 2015 19:07
Korea's Byeong Hun An hailed a "life-changing" victory after confirming the promise he showed as an amateur with a commanding win in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
-
An carded a final round of 65 to finish 21 under par and beat the previous tournament record by two shots, finishing six ahead of veterans Miguel Angel Jimenez and Thongchai Jaidee.
-
England's Chris Wood was two shots further back in fourth after a closing 66 which included winning a BMW i8 worth £100,000 for a hole-in-one on the 14th, a tournament-record fifth ace of the week.
-
Shane Lowry finished 11 under par after a closing round of three under par 69, his third bogey-free round in a row, which was good enough for the Offaly man to tie of sixth place.
-
Darren Clarke, meanwhile, shot a six under par 66 to finish on two under, with Peter Lawrie (74) and Graeme McDowell (73) both finished on 2 over par.
-
Damien McGrane finished on 6 over par, after a 73 today.
-
An is just the third player to win the European Tour's flagship event on their debut and claimed the first prize of £600,000, just 11 months after he was earning £1,581 for finishing joint 25th in the Scottish Hydro Challenge at Aviemore.
-
And the 23-year-old - who became the youngest winner of the US Amateur title in 2009 at the age of 17 - moves from 132nd in the world rankings to inside the top 60 as a result, securing his place in the US Open and Open Championship.
