Local hero Lu wins Taiwan golf

Taipei (Taiwan): Local hero Lu Wei-chih has won the Mercuries Taiwan Masters golf tournament Sunday despite shooting a 2-over final round of 74.

Playing on his home course at the Taiwan Golf and Country Club, Lu reclaimed the title he won in 2005 with a comfortable three-stroke victory.

He bogeyed the last two holes Sunday but the 66s he shot in the first two rounds — and his third-round even par of 72 — cushioned his poor finish.

Finishing behind Lu`s 278 were Thaworn Wiritchart of Thailand at 281, Japan`s Daisuke Kataoka at 283 and Miguel Tabuena of the Philippines at 284.
