Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia: Cho Rakh-yun cruised to a nine-shot victory in the OneAsia Qualifying School at Sutera Harbour Marina, Golf and Country Club.

The Korean closed with a five-under-par 66 for a four-round total of 16-under-par 268.

A Golf Course Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, the award-winning Sutera Harbour Golf Club boasts 27 holes, sculpted by Australian Graham Marsh.

In the Qualifying School, American Jeffrey Kang and Doeun An from Australia claimed second position following rounds of 69 and 70 respectively. Kang secured the second card based on countback.

Argentina’s Martin Kim was fourth after shooting 74 to finish four strokes further back.

Cho, aged 24, started the final round with a five-stroke lead and ran away with the tournament when he toured the front nine with a bogey-free four-under-par 32.

He dropped a couple of shots on the homeward half, including a bogey on 18, but still came back in one-under-par 34.

American Matthew Negri, who returned a 70, and Sweden’s Oskar Arvidsson, in with a 73, finished in a tie for fifth.

Cho will be eligible for all tournaments in 2017 while players ranked second to 10th will be exempt for most events.
