Omote takes title


Junko Omote won her second title in as many weeks on the Japan LPGA tour after shooting a 7-under-par 65 that gave her a one-stroke victory over Shin Hyun Ju at the Stanley Ladies on Sunday.

Omote birdied the par-5 17th and then parred the final hole to hold off Shin after the South Korean briefly took a share of the lead with an albatross on the 17th.
