Li Hao-Tong became the second successive Chinese winner of the Volvo China Open by triumphing at Topwin Golf and Country Club on Sunday.
Li's bogey-free 64 in the final round left him on 22-under-par for the tournament, three strokes clear of Chile's Felipe Aguilar.
Having missed the cut at the Shenzhen International last week, the 20-year-old was delighted to secure his maiden European Tour title on home turf.
"The start of this year has given me a lot of hard times," said Li, whose victory follows last year's triumph by countryman Wu Ashun.
"Even though I worked hard, I still played badly, especially last week. I worked hard there but couldn't control my ball."
With Aguilar in the group behind, Li was unaware that he held a healthy lead until he was on the 18th fairway.
The Hunan native explained: "When I had my tee-shot, I walked to my second shot there, and I was thinking, I need to go hybrid to get to the front edge to give me an easy chip to there but my caddy said, 'Haotong, you're already three shots in the lead - you've just got to lay up and make par to win'. So thanks to him!"
Lucas Bjerregaard, Richard Bland and Marcel Siem shared third place on 18-under.
Scotland's Richie Ramsay hit a final-round 66 to finish in a tie for sixth, with England's Tyrrell Hatton a couple of strokes back in a share of 13th place.
