- +

TIANJIN : Australian Brett Rumford romped to his second title in as many weeks yesterday with a final round four-under-par 68 that gave him a four-shot victory at the 20 million yuan (US $3.2 million) Volvo China Open at Tianjin Binhai Lake Golf Club. 

Rumford added the OneAsia and European Tour co-sanctioned title to the Ballantine's Championship he won in Korea last week, capping a remarkable fortnight that has seen him bank over a million dollars and soar up the world rankings from No.253 to the mid-80s.

The 37-year-old Australian finished at 16-under-par, with Finland's Mikko Ilonen (71) alone in second place and hard-charging Frenchman Victor Dubuisson (68) third.
