Katsumasa Miyamoto fired a sizzling 6-under-par 66 to come from behind and claim his first victory in nearly 20 months at the NST Niigata Open on Sunday.

Miyamoto, who last won at the Nippon Series JT Cup in December 2001, made eight birdies against two bogeys at Nakamine Golf Club to overturn a two-stroke deficit and beat American Gregory Meyer by one shot with a four-day total of 17-under 271.

Takahashi hangs on

MIZUNAMI, Gifu Pref. (Kyodo) Overnight leader Mihoko Takahashi forged a 6-under-par 66 in a bogey-free round on Sunday to claim a two-stroke victory in the Golf 5 Ladies tournament.

It was the 24-year-old’s third tourney title and her first since winning the Miyagi TV Cup Dunlop Ladies Open last September.
