|RISING talent Dou Zecheng became China’s first player to secure a US PGA Tour card on Sunday by winning the Digital Ally Open on the Web Tour.
Dou’s victory Mujer Nike Air Presto Zapatillas Granates Camo , the first for a Chinese on the developmental circuit, continues the 20-year-old’s impressive rise after he bagged four titles in the PGA Tour China Series last year to top the Order of Merit and earn his Web card.
“I hope (my win) will bring more young players from China to come out and play golf... and give them more confidence when they come out here and play,” the bespectacled Dou said in a video interview posted on the PGA Tour’s website after winning the Kansas event by 3 shots.
“This is going to be pretty big... I never thought I could win this year but it just happened.
“It’s a big honor to represent China and come play in the United States,” said Dou, known as Marty. “Playing and learning from the best, competing and earning my tour card, it feels amazing right now.”
Dou earned US$117 Hombre Nike Air Presto Zapatillas Granates ,000 to jump from 53rd to 15th on the money list with US$185,594, more than enough to wrap up a PGA Tour card with only four events left in the race for 25 spots.
“It’s going to be pretty big,” said Dou, who travels with fellow Chinese player Zhang Xinjun. “We’ve been talking to the Chinese media this year about a Chinese player potentially getting to the PGA Tour. ‘How soon will they get their card?’ and I just did it here....”
With rain washing out the first day’s play on Thursday, the last two rounds were held back-to-back on a marathon Sunday and Dou made his charge early at the Nicklaus Golf Club at Lions Gate.
He flirted with a course record during a third round of 61 before coolly closing out the win with a 66, finishing with a 25-under total of 259 Mujer Nike Air Presto Zapatillas Blancas , three ahead of second-placed Americans Kyle Thompson, Luke Guthrie and Billy Kennerly.
At age 20 years, 6 months, 8 days, Dou is the third-youngest winner in the history of the tour.
Born in China’s heartland province of Henan but raised in Vancouver for part of his childhood, Dou turned professional at 17, electing to forgo university and return to his homeland to hone his career.
The PGA Tour China Hombre Nike Air Presto Essential Zapatillas Negras , a circuit that offers promising Chinese golfers like Dou a chance to win a Web card, has struggled to get approvals for its tournaments, its managing director told US media in May.
China has only a few hundred courses, most with exorbitant green fees well beyond the budget of common people. But a number of the country’s young golfers have continued to make steady in-roads on the world’s leading tours.
Li Haotong, a 21-year-old from Hunan Province, won acclaim at the British Open last week when he closed with a 63 at Royal Birkdale to finish third, the best result by a Chinese at the men’s majors.
VIENTIANE Hombre Nike Air Presto Flyknit Ultra High Zapatillas Blancas , Nov. 14 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping met here Tuesday with Lao Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith, exchanging views on further consolidating bilateral relations.
Xi, who is also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said the two countries are friendly neighbors bonded by land and waters, with deep-running traditional friendship between the two peoples.
During the meeting, Xi told the prime minister that he and Bounnhang Vorachit, general secretary of the Lao People's Revolutionary Party Central Committee and president of Laos Hombre Nike NSW Cortez Flyknit Azul Blancas Zapatillas , both believe that the two countries should build a community of shared future with strategic significance.
China attaches great importance to developing bilateral relations with Laos, and will continue to adopt friendly policies to the Lao side, Xi said, adding that he believes the Lao people will achieve greater success in their pursuit for reform and renewal.
The Chinese president noted that the two countries need to keep high-level contact, deepen exchange of experience in governance of the parties and countries, and enhance cooperation in defense, law enforcement and security Mujer Nike Cortez Classic Nylon Amarillo Rosa Zapatillas , so as to promote friendly feelings between their peoples and further enrich their comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation with a high level of mutual trust, mutual support and mutual benefit.

China supports Laos as the co-chair of the 2018 Lancang-Mekong Cooperation, Xi said, while calling for closer multilateral coordination and continuous mutual support on issues of common concern.
Thongloun, for his part, congratulated Xi on his re-election as general secretary of the CPC Central Committee Mujer Nike Cortez Classic Nylon Rosa Blancas Zapatillas , saying he believes that under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Xi at the core, the Chinese people will achieve new success in their new journey to realize a great strategic goal, which will also be an inspiration for Laos' socialist cause.
Noting that the Lao people have long expected Xi's visit, the prime minister said he believes the historic visit will greatly promote the two countries' comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation.
The Lao side is ready to work with China to faithfully implement the results of the visit, deepen bilateral all-round exchanges and cooperation, and build an unbreakable community of shared future, he said.
Vientiane is the final leg of Xi's first overseas trip after the 19th CPC National Congress Hombre Nike Cortez Classic Nylon Negras Verde Zapatillas , which was held last month in Beijing.
Prior to the Laos visit, Xi attended the 25th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders' Meeting in Vietnam's central city of Da Nang and paid a state visit to the country.
