US golfer Seungsu Han clinched his first Asian Tour title at the Kolon Korea Open on Sunday, winning by six shots after leading from the opening round. The 36-year-old finished the final round with an even-par 71 for a tournament total of six-under-par 278 at the Woo Jeong Hills Country Club. “This is such a great honour,” said Han, who was born in Incheon, South Korea, but moved to the United States when he was 13. “I first started playing in Korea when I was 13, so the Korea Open means a lot to me,” he said. “I think it is the best tournament in Korea.” Han was trailed by South Korea’s Kang Kyung-nam, who also carded a final-round 71 to finish second.
