Fudo beats Webb at Nichirei Cup

TOKYO -- Japan's Yuri Fudo shot a bogey-free 5-under-par 67 Sunday for three-stroke victory over two-time defending champion Karrie Webb in the Nichirei Cup.

Fudo, who shared the lead with Webb after three rounds, had five birdies on the 6,424-yard, par-72 Tokyo Yomiuri Country Club to finish at 17-under 271.

Webb had a round of 2-under 70 and finished at 14-under 274.

Webb made three consecutive birdies on Nos. 4-6 to take an early lead, but struggled on the back nine, making bogeys on Nos. 15 and 16.

"I had a lot of birdie chances but my putting was off and that was a big factor today," Webb said.

Japan's Chieko Amanuma finished third at 10-under 278.
