Professional careerEdit

Wu played on the Asian Tour in 2008 and 2009. His best finish was T-4 at the 2009 Singha Thailand Open.

Wu played on the Japan Golf Tour in 2010 and from 2012 to 2015. He won his first title in September 2012 at the Toshin Golf Tournament in Ryosen. He was the first golfer from China to win on the Japan Golf Tour.[2] He also played on the OneAsia Tour, finishing 19th on the 2011 Order of Merit.[3] In 2013, Wu won for the second time on the Japan Golf Tour, with a one-stroke victory at the Heiwa PGM Championship. He won the Volvo China Open on the European Tour in 2015.

Since 2016, Wu has played primarily on the European Tour. In 2016 he won the Lyoness Open and in 2018 he had a third European Tour win, in the KLM Open, which made him the first Chinese player to win three times on the European Tour.[1]
