Kanaya is the second Japanese player to win the Asia-Pacific Amateur title, joining two-time winner Hideki Matsuyama, who called the new champion shortly afterward to offer his own congratulations. When storms halted play mid-round on Sunday, Kanaya proved able to handle the elements on and off the course. When play resumed, he made three straight birdies on the 14th, 15th and 16th holes finishing the day with seven total to separate himself from what at the start of the round had been a crowded leader board that included defending champion of Yuxin Lin of China who finished T-9 despite shooting a tournament-record 62 in the third round and countryman Cheng Jin, another past winner who finished sixth.

This is the biggest event we play all year and I have tried to prepare with it in mind.
