Charlie Dann has solidified his place inside the top 50 on the Order of Merit after the PGA TOUR Series-China tour was reduced to a 36-hole event for the second week in a row.
The Greg Norman-designed course that hosted the Dongguan Open at Mission Hills saw only half the action it expected as weather delays meant that some players didn’t complete their second rounds until Sunday morning.
American Joey Lane didn’t have to hit a single shot on the final day but his 10-under par total through 36 holes was enough to be declared the winner, his scintillating 62 in the first round setting up the first major win of his professional career.
Enjoying a strong start to his professional career, Dann’s rounds of 70-69 were good enough to enjoy a share of 25th place to stay at 49th on the moneylist.
Sydney’s Kevin Yuan also stayed inside the top 50 on the order of merit after finishing a shot shy of Dann in a tie for 34th, completing his 36 holes with three birdies, three bogeys and 30 pars on the challenging Norman layout.
A double-bogey at the par-4 12th soured Christopher Wood’s second round but he bounced back in strong fashion with three birdies in his final five holes to take a share of 48th, level with South Australian Max McCardle.
