U.S. tour regular Ryo Ishikawa captured the ANA Open on Sunday by two strokes to win his 12th title on Japan’s domestic JGTO tour.

Ishikawa, who began the final day in the lead, carded five birdies against two bogeys for a 3-under-par 69 to finish at 16-under-par 272 and defeat Yusaku Miyazato by two strokes.

“I didn’t think I’d be able to play as well as I did, and even so my game wasn’t all that good,” said Ishikawa, who celebrated his 24th birthday on the tournament’s opening day.

“It was just a matter of being able to prevail by playing my kind of golf.”
