Wentworth - South Korea's Byeong-hun An has turned the European PGA Championship into a procession winning the prestigious event by six shots at Wentworth on Sunday.

Twenty-three-year old An carded a final round 65 to finish on a tournament record mark of 267, 21- under par, beating the 19-under winning scores recorded by Scott Drummond in 2004 and Anders Hansen in 2002.

On a memorable day for Asian golf, Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee finished in a tie for second on 273 alongside Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez and two shots clear of England's Chris Wood who had a hole-in-one on his way to a 66.

Italy's Francesco Molinari, who was tied for the lead with An overnight, faded to a closing 74 and fifth.
