For the second week in succession, David Lutterus was the best of the Australians as the PGA Tour China's 2016 season came to a close at the Buick Open.

The former PGA TOUR player couldn't quite recreate his top-5 performance of the week before but a final round 71 on a brutally difficult golf course was enough for a top-20 result.

Just six Australians made a start at the final event of the China series where Tour cards were awarded to the top-5 on the Order of Merit at the conclusion of play.

Zecheng Dou, who dominated the year with four wins in the first seven events, took top honours and full status while the remaining four players receive conditional status on the US secondary Tour.

Jack Munro, Peter Martin and Jake Stirling were the other Australians to finish this week's tournament while Taylor Cooper was disqualified and Mitch Davis missed the cut.

South Australia's Max McCardle was the best of the Australians on the year end Order of Merit in 12th place with Rohan Blizard 14th and Daniel Nisbet 15th.

David Lutterus was the last of the Australians inside the top-20, taking 20th position with his strong play in the final two events of the year.
