Yusaku Miyazato, brother of LPGA Tour star Ai Miyazato, triumphed four times on the Japan Golf Tour Organisation last year: in the Crowns, the Japan PGA Championship, the Honma TourWorld Cup and the Golf Nippon Series JT Cup. His fine form saw him top the Money List for the first time in his career.
In 2015 the former Japan Amateur champion won the Dunlop Phoenix, one of the most prestigious events in Japan, and enjoyed eight top-10 finishes. He has claimed six titles in total on the Japan Tour.
In 2006 he hit the headlines when he became the first modern-era golfer to make two holes in one in the same round in a PGA Tour event at the Reno-Tahoe Open in Nevada.
