Noh Seung-yul might not have troubled the leaders yesterday, but he walked away from Fanling as the youngest-ever winner of the Asian Tour Order of Merit. The South Korean now has an unassailable lead after his main rival, Australian Marcus Fraser, played well but not well enough to collect the money he needed to reel Noh in. Noh finished at eight-under 272 and the Korean's US$822,361 for the season can't be topped, even with four events left. Noh said he had already been celebrating. 'I went into the city every night,' he said. 'It's fantastic.'
