Nike Athlete Hao-Tong Li Claims His Second Victory in Two Weeks

Li won two tournaments in two weeks on the PGA China Tour

(RELEASE) - Since adding the Vapor Pro driver to his bag in September, Nike athlete Hao-Tong Li keeps on winning  and in dominating form. Last week, the 19-year-old rising star won his fourth professional tournament title, including consecutive wins to finish out the 2014 season. On Nov. 29, Li claimed a five-shot victory at the CTS Tycoon Championship on the China PGA Tour.

“The victory is quite exciting," Li said. "The most amazing part is that I get the full pass to the Tour next year. 2014 is a breakthrough year for me. It is definitely one step closer to my dream of playing on the PGA Tour.”

The prior week, Li won his third professional title at the China PGA Tour Hainan Open by six strokes and took the No. 1 spot on the Order of Merit. His victory secured him a membership on the 2015 Tour, becoming the first Chinese athlete to qualify on the U.S.-based tour.

The Vapor Pro driver blends three key technologies: Nike’s new FlyBeam reinforced Covert Cavity Back design, a re-engineered Compression Channel and FlexLoft 2.

Li's bag also included the new Nike Vapor Pro irons (6-9) featuring the distinctive Modern Muscle technology, which balances weighting for perfected precision and power.

Also contributing to his successes, was Nike’s RZN Black golf ball, featuring the Speedlock RZN core technology, created with an interlocking core design, to help promote better energy transfer between the layers at impact for faster ball speed, longer distance and more stability into the wind.

Li sported apparel from Nike Golf’s Performance Collection and wore the Nike Lunar Control II shoe.

Li won the CTS Tycoon Championship by five shots.
