Golfer Lee Chang-woo won the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship with a total of 3-under 281 at Nanshan International Golf Club in Yantai, China on Sunday. The 20-year-old, who finished three strokes ahead of Japan's Shohei Hasegawa, said, "It is like a dream. It still doesn't feel real."
Lee's victory earns him a berth at the U.S. Masters in Augusta next year, one of the year's four majors, as well as a spot in the final round of qualifying for the British Open.
The Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship was created by the Masters Tournament, the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, and the Asia Pacific Golf Confederation in 2009 to promote golf in Asia.
Lee is the second Korean to win the tournament after Han Chang-won, 22, did so at the inaugural event four years ago. Last year's winner, Guan Tianlang of China, went on to make the cut at the Masters this year at the age of 14. Japan's rising golf star Hideki Matsuyama also competed at the latest Masters after winning the championship in 2011 and 2012.
