Zhang Lian-Wei and Liang Wen-Chong combined for a final-round 67 in foursomes to give Team China the winning score of 23-under-par 265 in the Davidoff Nations Cup at Royal Selangor Golf Club in Malaysia.
Right behind China was host country Malaysia as well as Norway, who ended just a shot back at 22-under, while Mexico finished two off the winning pace.
