Japan’s Yuko Moriguchi overcame a four-stroke deficit, fired a 3-under-par 70 Sunday and won the Miyagi-TV Cup Women’s Open golf tournament by one stroke as South Korea’s Ku Ok-hee ran into bogey trouble.

Moriguchi finished with 218, one-under par on the 6,294-yard, par-73 Matsushima Chisan Country Club course.

She collected $12,500 for her fourth victory of the season and the 27th of her career.
