TIANJIN, China (AP) -- Brett Rumford has become the first Australian in 41 years to win back-to-back European Tour titles after Sunday's victory at the China Open.
Rumford shot a final-round 68 to win by four shots with a 16-under 272 total.
It had taken Rumford more than five years and 121 tour events to capture a fourth title at last week's Ballantine's Championship, but he has managed a fifth just seven days later.
Finland's Mikko Ilonen shot a 71 to finish second at 12 under, with Victor Dubuisson (68) another shot back in third.
