Kochi, Japan (SportsNetwork.com) - Hideki Matsuyama shot 2-under-par 70 on Sunday to win the Casio World Open and clinch the Japan Golf Tour money title.

Matsuyama finished at 12-under 276 for his fourth win of the season, in the process becoming the first rookie to finish atop the Japan Tour's money list.

Yuta Ikeda fired a 69 to grab solo second at 11-under, Koumei Oda (71) took third at 9-under and Sung-Joon Park (69) and Kazuhiro Yamashita (70) shared fourth at minus-7.

Matsuyama, who posted top-10 finishes at both the U.S. Open and British Open in 2013, mixed four birdies and a pair of bogeys during his final round to maintain his overnight advantage and secure the victory.
