For the second year running has made it to The Open with a victory. Winning the 2017 Japan Open gave him a place at Carnoustie and he will be at Royal Portrush thanks to his success at the Mizuno Open on June 2. 

Four spots were on offer as part of the Qualifying Series and he beat Chan Kim by one for his 21st title on the circuit. It will be his eighth appearance in all and he played in 2017 by topping the Japan Tour Order of Merit the previous season, when he won twice and had six runner-up finishes. Achieved his highest-ever position on the world rankings in 2010, reaching 33rd after four wins both then and the previous year to earn an invitation to the Masters, where he finished 29th. 

As an amateur twice represented Japan in the Eisenhower Trophy World Championship and since then has also played in the 2011 World Cup and was part of the Asian team against Europe at the Royal Trophy the same year. “I was worried I might not be able to play in The Open this year, so it is great to have the opportunity to play on the big stage again,” he said.
