Taipei - Shaun Norris overcame swirling winds with a four-under-par 68 to win the weather-shortened Yeangder Tournament Players Championship by two shots on Sunday, pipping overnight leader Miguel Tabuena.
The 33-year-old Asian Tour rookie from South Africa shot five birdies in his opening seven holes and finished with a winning total of 12-under-par 204, after Friday's second round was washed out by rain.
"I always joke with my family and friends that I play better in the worst conditions. I think it makes me concentrate more. I probably focus more," said Norris.
"I only realised how the scoreboard looked after 17. I was a little bit nervous heading into 18."
Norris overcame a three-shot deficit to beat Tabuena, who was again frustrated after he lost a play-off at the event in Taipei last year.
"How many times do I have to finish second? It is frustrating, but I'm still happy with the way I played," said the Filipino.
South Korea's Kim Gi-Whan, Taiwan's Hsu Hao-sheng of Chinese Taipei, Keith Horne of South Africa and Thai duo Panuphol Pittayarat and Natipong Srithong tied for third place.
