The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Kurt Barnes became the first Australian to win a tournament on the Omega China Tour after a final round of 72 gave him a one-stroke victory at the Sofitel Zhongshan IGC Open.

Barnes, who uses a Titleist Pro ViX golf balls, recorded a level par round at the Nanjing Zhongshan International Golf Course including an eagle, a bogey and a double-bogey at the par-three eighth after he four-putted, to finish four-under.

The 27-year old finished one shot ahead of Thailand's Wisut Arjanawat and two ahead of Zhang Lianwei.

"This feels awesome. It's a huge weight off my shoulders," said Barnes, whose previous victory was the 2005 Victorian Open.

"To lift a trophy in my first start on the Omega China Tour is just great. I was surprised to be in the lead so quickly and go three ahead after three holes.

“My caddie did a great job this week and helped me with a few putts. The club should be proud of her.

“Zhang played so well on Saturday that I thought Craig and I were going to have to run him over to have a chance of winning.”

"I dodged a lot of bullets today, especially after I four-putted eight and hit into the hazard with my tee-shot on 16.

"The key for me today was patience. I only made a few mistakes, but I reacted well when I made them and stayed calm."
