Nicolas Colsaerts set a tournament record at the China Open on Sunday, finishing at 24 under to win by four shots over a group of four players.

The Belgian, who regained his European Tour card only last year, made six birdies in a 6-under 66 to total 264 and beat the old mark by five strokes.

Pablo Martin of Spain (63), Peter Lawrie of Ireland (68), Soren Kjeldsen of Denmark (66) and Danny Lee of New Zealand (65) were next at Luxehills International Country Club in the southwestern city of Chengdu.

Prayad Marksaeng in 1996 and Ed Fryatt in 1998 both totaled 19 under to win the tournament.

India's Jeev Milkha Singh finished tied on the 10th spot.
