Chinese player Liang Wen Chong on Sunday won a major golf tournament, the Singapore Masters 2007,after defeating his Malaysian rival Iain Steel.

It is Liang's first victory in an international golf tournament, and he also became the second Chinese player, after Zhang Lian Weiin 2003, to win a major golf tournament in the city state.

At the final day of the four-day tournament, which was held at the Laguna National Golf and Country Club, 29 year-old Liang and his Malaysian rival Steel topped the leader board with an 11 under total, resulting in a playoff from the 18th hole. Liang took the first drive in the 18th hole decider and placed it sweetly in the center of the fairway, putting the pressure onto his opponent. Steel then drove into the water and had to take a penalty shot which ultimately handed the trophy to Liang, who began to play golf at the age of 15.

Speaking at a press conference after the match, Liang said that he was very glad to win the title, and plans to donate the 183,000 U.S. dollars top prize for the development of youth golf in China.

The 1.1 million U.S. dollars event was established in 2001 and is the only international men's professional golf tournament held in Singapore.
