Erika Kikuchi Wins 2016 Studio Alice Ladies Open (JLPGA)

Erika Kikuchi secured her 2nd career LPGA of Japan (JLPGA) title with a victory at the 2016 Studio Alice Open. Her 2-under 70 left her at 14-under overall, 4 shots clear of Ai Suzuki and Jiyai Shin. However, the story of the tournament for Erika was her 2nd round, where she might have played the best golf of her professional life, recording 9 birdies and no bogeys for a 9-under 63. As sensational as Kikuchi was here, I have to give some love to Jiyai Shin, who finished with her third straight 2nd place finish. In five events, Jiyai has three 2nds, one 3rd and one 8th. She is so due.
