PAUL DUNNE’S WAIT for a first European Tour title continues after a disappointing fourth round saw the Greystones man drop off the pace in China.

The 23-year-old began the day in a tie for fifth, five shots behind leader Soomin Lee, still with 24 holes to play at a stormy Shenzhen International.

But Dunne struggled in today’s conditions, finishing the 16th hole of his final round before play was suspended because of thunderstorms.

In the 22 holes Dunne completed today, he failed to make any birdies and carded four bogeys to sit on five-under-par for the tournament, nine shots behind the leaders, with just two holes to play tomorrow.

At the moment, that has Dunne in a tie for 25th position.

Lee (13 holes completed in fourth round), Lee Slattery (13) and Alexander Levy (12) lead the way on 14-under-par with Scott Hend (clubhouse), Joost Luiten (15) and Brandon Stone (13) just one shot further back.

Elsewhere, two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson also surged up the leaderboard with a final-round 66 to complete his tournament at 10-under-par.
