Home

Shinichi Yokata has edged out teen sensation Ryo Ishikawa to win the Canon Open by two shots in Yokohama.

Shinichi Yokata’s final round of 67 saw the 38-year-old edge out Ryo Ishikawa to win the Canon Open by two shots at Totsuka CC in Yokohama.
Yokata collected an eagle, four birdies and a bogey to pull clear of fellow overnight co-leaders Ishikawa and Hideto Tanihara and finish on 14 under par to take the title.
Ishikawa made a late charge with five birdies in the final six holes but his three-under 69 was not enough to overhaul Yokata and the 19-year-old had to settle for second place.
Takashi Kanemoto and Kazuhiko Hosokawa finished tied for third on 11-under after both carded impressive 66s but Tanihara could manage joint-21st after a final round of 76 put paid to his chances.
