Kenichi is a five-time winner in Japan where he ended a nine-year winless run with victory at the Canon Open in 2011. He also plies his trade on the Asian Tour, safely finishing in 44th place on the Order of Merit in 2010 with three top-10s. In 2011, he missed out on his full card by four rungs on the rankings. The Japanese veteran came close to winning his maiden title at the Johnnie Walker Cambodian Open in 2010, having led the tournament for three rounds, but came up short against Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee and had to settle for second place.
