Auckland golfer Sam An has finished the best of the six Kiwis at the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship in China.
The 19-year-old from the Titirangi Golf Club carded a two-over par 73 in the final round at the Nanshan International Golf Club in Shandong province to finish in a share of 19th place.
The New Zealand rep finished on an 11-over par total, 14 shots back from Korean Lee Chang-woo who won by three strokes to secure an invitation to the US Masters at Augusta National in 2014.
It completed a fine week for An who made a hole-in-one during round three of the championship.
He hit a "six iron punch draw" to the par 3 17th for the fifth hole-in-one in his career.
"That was the best moment of the day," An said in his typical understated way.
An's top-20 finish continued his consistent 2013 season where he has managed four top-five finishes to be eighth on the NZ Golf Order of Merit.
Fellow Kiwis Vaughan McCall (Gore) and Blair Riordan (Takaka) finished in a share of 22nd place on a 13-over par total.
Waikato golfer Luke Toomey was one shot further back in a share of 25th place and American-based Auckland golfer Nick Voke finished in 33rd place.
Manawatu No.1 Joshua Munn fought back well from his forgettable start to finish in a share of 44th place.
