Luke Donald defends title
MIYAZAKI, Japan -- Luke Donald shot a 5-under 66 on Sunday to defend his title at the Dunlop Phoenix and claim his first victory of the year.
Heading into the final round with a two-stroke lead, Donald carded seven birdies against a pair of bogeys at the par-71 Phoenix Country Club to finish at 14-under 270.
The 35-year-old Briton, who hadn't won since winning the title here last year, claimed the $400,000 winner's prize.
Kim Hyung-sung of South Korea finished second at 8 under after a final round 70 while Japanese tour veteran Shingo Katayama shot a 65 to finish third, one stroke behind Kim.
