China's Wu Ashun beats David Howell by 1 stroke to win Volvo China Open

SHANGHAI – Wu Ashun became the first Chinese player to win a European Tour title on home soil when he beat David Howell by one stroke to capture the Volvo China Open on Sunday.

Emiliano Grillo made a spirited run on the final day, making four birdies in five holes on the front nine before hitting into the water on No. 17, leading to double bogey. He finished joint-third.
