After a victory at the Lyonness Open, Wu Ashun is back among the projected field for this summer's Olympics.

Ashun shot a final-round 69 to win in Austria, becoming the first Chinese player to record multiple victories on the European Tour. As a result, he is now the top-ranked Chinese player in the world at No. 127, knocking W.C. Liang out of the projected field in the process.

The 60-man field for Rio will be finalized with the July 11 world rankings that will be published ahead of the Open Championship. Each country can have up to two representatives, with that max raised to four if all are ranked inside the top 15.
