Double delight for Wang in Mauritius

20-year-old heads to Dubai Duty Free Irish Open in red-hot form

Jeunghun Wang made it back-to-back European Tour wins as he came out on top in a final day battle with Siddikur Rahman to claim the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open.

Siddikur came into the final day with a one-shot lead over Wang and had extended that to three as he stood on the 16th tee, but he dropped three shots in two holes to leave the duo going up the last locked together on five under. 

A birdie for Wang after a brilliant bunker shot then handed the South Korean a one-shot victory, just seven days after he won his maiden title at the Trophée Hassan II in Morocco.

The 20-year-old required a birdie on the last at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam to get into a play-off last week but when Siddikur missed his effort after an excellent chip which hit the pin, one was enough to hand Wang a triumph in the Indian Ocean.

The win makes Wang the first player to win in consecutive weeks since Rory McIlroy claimed the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational followed by the US PGA Championship in 2014 and he also becomes the first Asian player to win in consecutive weeks.

“I hope I can win three in a row, but next week is a really big tournament and it’s my first time in Ireland, so I’m not sure. I’ll be trying my best.

“I probably had luck on my side today. I wasn’t even thinking about winning this week until the 16th. I missed a lot of putts so I thought I didn’t have any chance to win.”

Wang and Siddikur were the only two players to finish under par after a tough week for scoring at Four Seasons Golf Club at Anahita, with Nicolas Colsaerts and Estanislao Goya at level par, a shot clear of Andrew Dodt.

Colsaerts signed for a wild 75 which contained an eagle and three double-bogeys while Dodt’s 76 left him a shot clear of Brandon Stone.
