Local golfer Li Haotong has won the European Tour's Volvo China Open by three shots in Beijing.

Li fired a bogey-free last round of 8-under 64 to equal the best round of the week and keep the trophy in China.

Li is the second Chinese player to have lifted the trophy after Wu Ashun's triumph last year.

Twenty-year-old Li is very excited for this unexpected victory.

"It means.... it's a lot, a lot. I cannot imagine, 'cause especially, I win the Volvo China junior event in 2010. I really, really like Volvo China Open and also my first profession event, also is Volvo China Open. So, it means, for me it's a lot, especially, last year I played great, but last round I didn't hold there so, pretty happy to see I've held a trophy here."

Defending champion Wu Ashun and the other Chinese golfer Dou Zecheng are both sharing 60th place at 2-under overall.
