Miyazato girls can't find range

Date Posted: 2010-10-14

Mika Miyazato led the Navistar Ladies Professional Golf Association Classic by four strokes at the halfway point, but faltered and wound up eight, while her better known namesake couldn’t get things going at all, finishing tied for 27th.

Ai Miyazato, the world’s number one women’s tour golfer, held on to her ranking for an eighth consecutive week, thanks to her second place challenger, Cristie Kerr, blowing a three-shot overnight lead. Miyazato finished at 9 under mixing five birdies with three bogeys and one double bogie on the Prattville, Alabama course.

Mika Miyazato celebrated her 21st birthday on the course Sunday, shooting a 2-under 70 to finish at 15-under 273, four strokes behind Australia’s Katherine Hull. Hull won the Navistar LPGA Classic with a 67, defeating Brittany Lincicome and Lindsey Wright.

“I couldn’t play well enough because the greens were very firm,” the young Miyazato said, “but I still think I was able to stay patient.” She noted “to win on the U.S. LPGA Tour, you need an amazingly low score, and now I’ve grown confident I have a potential to do that.”
