Luke Donald shot a 3-under 68 on Sunday to win the Dunlop Phoenix by five strokes for his first win on the Japanese tour.

Donald eagled the par-5 7th hole and added three birdies against a pair of bogeys at the Phoenix Country club to finish at 16-under 268, five strokes ahead of Japanese amateur Hideki Matsuyama, who shot a 67.

Donald, who won the U.S. PGA Tour and European Tour money titles last season, was playing in the Japan Tour event for the first time since 2007.

Koumei Oda shot a 64 to finish third at 10-under while Hiroyuki Fujita (70) and Australian Brendan Jones (71) finished tied for fourth place at 9-under.

Japan's Ryo Ishikawa, winner of last week's Taiheiyo Masters, had a 70 for 22nd at 1-under.
