Defending champion Brooks Koepka added to his stunning Dunlop Phoenix tournament record with a massive nine-shot victory today over Prayad Marksaeng, Sang Hee Lee and Tour Championship winner Xander Schauffele at the Phoenix Country Club in Miyazaki, Japan.

Seven out of the eight rounds Koepka has played in this event haven been in the 60s and today, just to add salt to the wounds of those he inflicted on the field for much of the week, he eagled the final hole today to stretch his, by then, already unassailable lead.

The victory should elevate Koepka to number 8 in the world and continue the rapid rise he has made in the game over the last 12 months.

Hideki Matsuyama finished in 5th position to be the leading Japanese player.

Brad Kennedy finished as the leading Australian when he produced a final round of 66 to finish in a share of 11th.

The Japan Golf Tour now moves to Kochi for this week's Casio World Open.
