Nasa Hataoka missed out on a third consecutive title at the Japan Women’s Open Championship after finishing runner-up to South Korea’s Ryu So Yeon on Sunday.

Hataoka, who started the final round at the Chiba Country Club two strokes off the pace, carded four birdies for a 4-under-par 68 and a 12-under 276 total, failing in her bid to become the second woman to complete a three-peat in the 140 million yen ($1.2 million) event.
