BY Bruce Young | Japan Tour | 2012 Golf Nippon Series JT Cup | Wrap | 02 Dec 2012

Hiroyuki Fujita has added a fourth victory to his already outstanding Japan Golf Tour season by easily winning the Golf Nippon Series JT Cup at the Tokyo Yomiuri Golf Club in Tokyo.

Fujita completed his all the way victory with a final round of 67 to win by five shots over Toshinori Muto and American Han Lee with Kyung Tae Kim in 4th position.

Fujita also recorded nine other top tens in his best season on the Japan Tour, the 44 year old capturing the money list title by the biggest margin since Toshi Izawa in 2001.

Brad Kennedy finished in a share of 14th position this week and finished in 23rd position on the money list.

Brendan Jones finished well back in this week’s event when he was 21st but the Canberra golfer finished 3rd overall on the 2012 money list, the equal best finish of his career. Jones earnings for the season were €92,000,000 or A$1.1 million.
