England's Danny Willett plays a shot on the ninth hole during the BMW Masters 2012 golf tournament …

(Reuters) - Englishman Danny Willett and Germany's Marcel Siem lit up the final round of the China Open with a hole-in-one each on Sunday.

Willet shot his best round of the week, a five-under-par 67 to aggregate six-under 282 and the highlight was the ace he scored on the 187-metre 12th hole with a five iron that also earned him a Volvo V40.

Earlier, Siem did it on the 200-metre par-three eighth with a three iron but there were no prizes on that hole.

The German signed off with a one-under-par 71 to total two-under 286.
