Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama clocked a 65th final round to win the Zozo Championship in his native Japan.
Matsuyama, who did an eagle on the 18th, finished 15 under par in Chiba to win the tournament by five strokes.
Americans Brendan Steele (66) and Cameron Tringale (69) finished second with 10 under.
“It’s so great to play in front of so many fans here in Japan and to be able to play well,” said Matsuyama, 29.
England’s Matt Wallace was fourth as he scored a 70 in the last lap to finish six under, with compatriot Tommy Fleetwood (70) a shot down.
The tournament returned to Japan this year, having been moved to California in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, with the gallery limited to 5,000 fans.
Tringale took the lead after a birdie on the 10, but failed to birdie afterwards, as he bogeyed on the 17 and 18.
Matsuyama, on the other hand, produced three birdies out of the last nine, with his eagle, to secure the victory.
