Chinese golfer Li Hao-tong delighted his home crowds and collected one of the biggest cheques of his career by holding off a host of Major champions to win the 2016 Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am on the tropical island of Hainan
Americans Mark O’Meara, Paula Creamer and overnight leader Rich Beem, all Major winners, were a further point back in a tie for third.
O’Meara described his admiration for fellow Golf Hall of Famer Gary Player. “Gary and I were sharing stories on Mr [Ben] Hogan. I told him how much I appreciate what Gary Player has meant to me in my life and to the game,” said O’Meara of the nine-time Major winner.
