Shiho Oyama was given the top rank after beating Mijeong Jeon of South Korea, Sakura Yokumine and Japan’s very own Yuri Fudo. In the same year, Shiho Oyama emerged the winner at the Fujisankei Ladies Classic which is an annual golf event on the JLPGA Tour.

Though she had a shaky start during this tournament, Shiho Oyama managed to end the match with a two-shot victory. This was Shiho Oyama’s 10th career win and her first after her previous victory weeks before at the Nichirei PGM Ladies. Shiho Oyama finished year 2007 being third in the money list with a paycheck of 12.6 million yen.
One of Shiho Oyama’s greatest moments was in the Suntory Ladies Open in 2008.
