Yang Yong-eun let his nerves get the best of him on Sunday, but only after the South Korean completed a two-shot victory at the China Open.

Yang, who became Asia's first Major winner by claiming the PGA Championship last year, battled wind and rain to card a final round of 71 for a combined 15-under-par.

The Welsh pair of Stephen Dodd and Rhys Davies were in joint second two shots back, with Johan Edfors, Mikko Ilonen and Jamie Donaldson tied for fourth on 12 under.

Yang said he enjoyed the winning feeling, even if it was tinged with anxiety.

Overnight T46, Jyoti Randhawa moved up a spot to finish at 287. After two under-par rounds, the Indian could manage a 73 on Sunday.
