Rookie Perry Best of Australians at Fujisankei Classic

Korea’s Sang Hyun Park has today won his second Japan Golf Tour title nearly three years after his first with a two-shot victory in this week’s Fujisankei Classic west of Tokyo.

Park came from four shots off the 54-hole pace set by his fellow Korean Ho Sung Choi and American Chan Kim, a bogey free final round of 65 seeing him home by two over Choi and Hiroshi Iwata, a former winner of the event.

Kim finished alone in 4th place, one shot ahead of Ryo Ishikawa who was looking to win this event for the third occasion.

The 36-year old, Park, has won another six titles on the Korean PGA Tour.

It was not a particularly good week for the Australasians in the field, rookie Dylan Perry doing the best when he finished tied for 24th. Perry recovered from his third round of 74 to finish with 69 and he moves to 59th on the money list for this season.

New Zealander Michael Hendry was 32nd, Brendan Jones 40th and Matthew Griffin and Won Joon Lee 50th.

The Japan Golf Tour will now play the ANA Open in Sapporo, Hokkaido.
