UPDATE: Kevin Yuan of the Australian Golf Club, and former NSW Amateur Champion Mitchell Brown have finished tied 6th after the final round of the China Golf Tour Qualifying school.

The tournament was held at the OCT Kunming Wind Valley Club at Kunming, Yunnan Province.

Yuan, who lead the four round event by three shots with just one round remaining, had the wind taken out of his sails after an early double bogey. He got the round back on track with a brace of birdies on the back nine. Two late bogeys however on the 16th and 17th holes however did little to diminish his effort.

Mitchell Brown shot a fine five under 67 to secure his card for the 2017 Tour. His homeward nine was brilliant, and featured four birdies and an eagle.

The trio of Peter Martin, Maverick Antcliff and Jichul Chung finished in a tie for 13 to grab cards for this year. The Top 15 and ties secured cards for the 2017 season.

The group will be joined Victorian Deyen Lawson, who qualified for this years tour last week at the same venue.
