Shanghai: Nineteen-year-old Li Haotong on Sunday became the youngest winner of an Asia-Pacific OneAsia tournament, taking the Nanshan China Masters by shooting a final round one-under-par 70.

"I think I am too young to win a Masters event," Li joked. He finished the tournament at nine under, taking home $180,000 of the $1 million purse.

Winds gusting up to 40 miles (64 kilometres) per hour added to the challenge on the final day.

"I could not stand sometimes when I was putting as the wind was so strong. I never played in wind like this," Li said.

Australian Lee Jun Seok shot a 69 at the par-71 Nanshan International Golf Club to take second place while Todd Baek of Korea posted a 74 for third.
