Money rankings leader Yuri Fudo eagled in the back nine and maintained the lead she took from the second round on, winning the Japan LPGA Championship on Sunday with an 11-under-par 277 for her first major victory on the Japanese tour.

Fudo carded just two birdies against as many bogeys at Taiheiyo Club and Associates and eagled the par-5 15th for a 2-under 70 and a four stroke advantage over Michie Oba and Miho Koga in the four-day tournament.
