Ashun Wu won the 2022 Magical Kenya Open on Sunday and set history in the tournament as the first Chinese ever to win the championship.

Ashun discharged 6 under par 65 to clinch victory at the Muthaiga Golf Club in the face of fans graced by President, Uhuru Kenyatta.

"It's a big party, I'm so happy with my family here," Ashun said.

"It's a very very good feeling today to win a title. It was very tough today, I played very very well today and made seven birdies."

"After two rounds I told myself if I can make five-under every day on the weekend and finish 15 under, I think I'll have a chance to win the tournament."

Furthermore,  being the initial Chinese golfer to achieve the Kenya Open, the 36-year-old is also the first Chinese player to win three times on the European Tour.

In 2015, he came to be the first Chinese golfer to win on home soil in a European Tour event when he commandeered the Volvo China Open.
