Ryo Ishikawa earned his second win of the season as he cruised to a five-stroke victory at the JGTO season finale Nippon Series JT Cup on Sunday.

A day after breaking free of a three-way share of the lead with a third-round 63 at Tokyo Yomiuri Country Club, Ishikawa shot a 3-under-par 67 for a total of 14-under 266 en route to his 13th title on the domestic JGTO tour.

Ishikawa, who started the day with a 3-stroke lead, carded six birdies and three bogies to secure his first victory since the ANA Open in September, collecting ¥40 million in prize money.

Komei Oda and Yoshinori Fujimoto were tied for second place on 271, and Yuta Ikeda finished fourth (274).
