Japanese teenager Ryo Ishikawa won the Taiheiyo Masters on Sunday, shooting a 5-under 67 to hold off Australian Brendan Jones for his third title of the year on the Japanese tour.

The 19-year-old Ishikawa had seven birdies and two bogeys at the Taiheiyo Club's Gotemba Course to finish at 14-under 274.

Jones, who won this event in 2007, also closed with a 67, pulling within a stroke of Ishikawa when he made a 30-foot eagle putt on the par-5 18th. Ishikawa responded with a birdie on the last hole to secure the win.
