Lin Yuxin holds narrow lead at Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship

Noah Ferguson | 29 October, 2017, 08:03

New Zealand crowds will get one more look at budding superstar Yuxin Lin before he embarks on his golfing dream at Augusta and Carnoustie next year.

Sri Lanka's Leading Amateur B.A. Sanjeewa made the cut-off at the Royal Wellington Golf Club New Zealand, representing Sri Lanka at the invitation of the World Amateur Golf Ranking Major Invitational Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship among Amateurs qualified to receive an "invite".

Foo, who closed with consecutive birdies, said: "I felt like I got some good momentum with the birdies and I'm hitting the ball better than yesterday too".

He went into the final day at eight-under with a one-stroke lead over Chinese compatriot Andy Zhang and Min Woo Lee of Australia.

The 19-year-old Australian responded with back-to-back birdies before draining a 20m eagle putt on the 497m, par-five 18th to shoot a three-under 68 and take the halfway lead on seven-under 135.

"I just used his words and it turned out well". The 17-year-old from Beijing shot a 67 and is second on 136. I'm actually very proud of myself to be able to do it.

"I thought it was a bit short, but it turns out it's pretty good", he laughed. "For next year, I think I will just try to enjoy as much as possible".

He tied with Yechun Yuan while yet another member of the powerful Chinese squad, Cheng Jun, was outright fifth, a shot further back.

Lin finished at 14-under 270.

Daniel Hillier finished the highest-ranked New Zealander, his final-round 68 earning him a share of sixth place with two others, nine strokes shy of Lin's winning tally and one stroke clear of the next-best Kiwi, Kerry Mountcastle. "We came in a little late but the next generation is coming up and China is going to be a big country up there with everyone else very soon".
