Ishikawa wins Taiheiyo Masters for third title

Japanese teenager Ryo Ishikawa won the Taiheiyo Masters on
Sunday after shooting a 5-under 67 to hold off Australian Brendan
Jones, who sank an eagle putt on the last hole.

The 19-year-old Ishikawa carded seven birdies against two bogeys
at the Taiheiyo Club’s Gotemba Course to finish at 14-under 274.
Jones was two shots back after also shooting a 67.

It was Ishikawa’s third win of the season on the Japanese
tour.

Jones, who won this event in 2007, pulled to within one stroke
of Ishikawa when he made a 30-foot eagle putt on the par-5 18th.
But Ishikawa birdied the final hole to secure the win.
