Ai Miyazato wins Europe LET money title

Date Posted: 2011-12-30

She only played in two tournaments on the Ladies European Tour this season, but that was enough for Ai Miyazato to win the LET title.

The announcement has many golfers frustrated with the way things worked out, but it’s all on the up-and-up. Miyazato played in only the two LPGA Tour scheduled events, and that was enough. The Evian Masters packed a purse of $487,500 for Miyazato, enough to overshadow everything else on the European circuit.

Miyazato’s victory at the Evian Masters left her well ahead of the pact, beating both Melissa Reid and Carofina Hedwall. Reid won twice in 19 European starts, while Hedwall won four of 20 tournaments. “To be honest, I have mixed feelings because I’m receiving the award from just winning one event on the LET,” Miyazato says, “but I”ve never won the money title on any tour, so I’m really happy.”

The Ladies European Tour does not require a minimum number of tournaments to be a member. Had Yani Tseng of Taiwan chosen to be a member, as Miyazato did, it would have been Tseng winning the title. As it is, Tseng won the LPGA Tour money list with $2.9 million this year, more than the next two players on the roster behind her.
