Erika Kikuchi won her first LPGA of Japan (JLPGA) title in style, leading from wire to wire to capture the 2015 KKT Vantelin Ladies Open at 9-under over three rounds. That was good enough to outpace Bo-Mee Lee and Maiko Wakabayashi, who tied for 2nd at 4-under. Since her rookie year in 2008, Erika has been improving but still struggled to find her stride until finally cracking the top 20 on the year end money list in 2013. It’s only April, but the ¥18,000,000 (around 151,375 USD) she won has Kikuchi atop the JLPGA Money List. In the first seven events of the season, Erika has finished in the top 7 five times and the top 3 three times. Bo-Mee Lee remains atop the Mercedes Player of the Year points race.
