SUZHOU, China -- South Korea's Y.E. Yang won the China Open on Sunday, shooting a 1-under 71 to seal a two-stroke victory over Welshmen Rhys Davies and Stephen Dodd.

Yang made his only bogey of the weekend at the Jinji Lake Golf Club's tough 18th hole, leaving him with a 15-under total of 273.

Davies closed with a 67 and Dodd shot a 69.

Yang was eighth at the Masters last week, and said he was "a bit tired after a long week."

Jamie Donaldson of Wales (73), Mikko Ilonen of Finland (73) and Johan Edfors of Sweden (69) shared fourth at 12 under, one ahead of Oliver Fisher of England (69).
