Result: Brendan Grace wins China Open

Branden Grace wins his third European Tour event of the summer with victory in the Volvo China Open.

Branden Grace has won the Volvo China Open after carding a final round 69 to finish three clear of the field on 21 under par.

The South African secured his third European Tour triumph of the season with victory in Tianjin adding to victories in his native land earlier in the year.

Grace recorded four birdies and just the one bogey before closing with six straight pars to hold off the challenge of Nicholas Colsaerts.

The Belgian finished on 18 under par in second while Englishman Richard Finch came third, but the day belonged to Grace, who continued his remarkable transition from the Tour qualifying school.

"I stayed really calm today. I kept hitting the ball well. I missed a couple of shots the first couple of holes but regrouped well and made the birdies where it counts on the par fives, and just stayed with it from there," Grace told

"I thought my first win was around the corner [this season]. To have three before May is literally unbelievable, but I've been playing well so I've been feeling like I can win and I've been giving myself opportunities.

"I'm definitely here to win every week I play now."
