Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Strange rallied on the back nine to post a final round 4-under 68 at the Volvo China Open, securing a one-stroke victory. Strange began his final round four strokes off the pace, but three back-nine birdies gave him the winning total of 8-under 280. It marks the second career victory for Strange, who won first time at last year's Celtic Manor Wales Open.
