KYOTO, Japan – Daisuke Maruyama of Japan has ended a four-year title drought by winning the Asia-Pacific Open.

The former PGA Tour player held the overnight lead and only managed a 3-over 74 in tough conditions in the final round on Sunday. That was good enough to stay four strokes clear of China’s Liang Wen-chong, South Korea’s Kim Kyung-tae and Japan’s Yuta Ikeda.

Maruyama’s 8-under 276 total earned him $320,444 and a two-year’s exemption on the Asian Tour and Japan Golf Tour.

He earned his first victory since the 2005 Fuji Sankei Classic.

Japanese star Ryo Ishikawa birdied his closing two holes for a 72 and finished tied for 16th at 286.
