Norris wins big in Japan

Shaun Norris claimed his fifth victory on the Japan Golf Tour when he won a three-way playoff for the Golf Partner Pro-Am at the Toride Kokusai Golf Club on Sunday.

Norris beat Zimbabwean Scott Vincent and Tomohiro Otsuki on the second hole of the playoff.

It was a week of incredible golf for Norris, who opened with a 60 and then signed for a final round of 63 to tie for the lead on 21 under par.

As he explained to his Japanese audience, “This pro-am format may be new to the Japan Golf Tour, but in my home country on the Sunshine Tour we play the majority of our tournaments in this format, so I am used to it.”

Norris said the victory is a timely one as he seeks to win more titles this year.

“I wasn’t able to come to the Japan Golf Tour last year so I am way down on the money list , but I will fight on hard to catch up. I want to win at least two more tournaments this season.”
