Yeoju, Gyeonggi-do, Korea (SportsNetwork.com) - Sung-Hoon Kang carded a 2- under 70 on Sunday to cruise to a five-stroke win at the CJ Invitational.

Kang earned his second career title on the Asian Tour at 12-under-par 276.

"It feels like I'm dreaming. I can't believe that I won. Maybe I'll wake up tomorrow and the winning feeling will sink in," said Kang.

The 26-year-old Kang entered the final round with a three-stroke lead and was never threatened on the day following four straight birdies from the third.

He would play his final 12 holes at the Haesley Nine Bridges Golf Club at 2- over after tripping to bogeys at the eighth and 16th, but his early hot streak never left his victory in doubt.

Jyoti Randhawa (67) and Tae-Hoon Kim (72) shared second place at 7-under, while Jason Knutzon (69), Seuk-hyun Baek (69) and Kiradech Aphibarnrat (73) tied for fourth at 6-under 282.
