Double win for Simon Dyson

England's Simon Dyson completed a highly successful year on the Asian PGA tour by winning the $500,000 Hong Kong Open on Sunday.

Dyson's final-round seven-under-par 64 gaven him his biggest pay cheque of $80,750 and the Tour Order Of Merit title.

The Briton, who turns 23 on Thursday, produced a vintage putting display to win by three strokes from Australian Kim Felton, American John Kernohan and South Korea's Charlie Wi who were tied for second place.

Defending champion Patrik Sjoland of Sweden ended one stroke back while third-round leader Paul Lawrie of Scotland closed with a disappointing 74 to fall back into a tie for eighth place.

"Seeing my name on top of the leaderboard is hard to believe. I putted so well. I holed some really good putts," said Dyson, who turned professional at the end of last year.

Victory allowed him to jump from third place on the Merit list to first with total winnings for the year of $282,371. India's Jyoti Randhawa ended second with $224,897, while Taiwan's Yeh Wei-tze was third on $224,356.
