The limp first half of the JLPGA's 2020-21 season comes to a close this week with temperate climes at Miyazaki CC ... highs ranging from 61F to 68F Thursday thru Sunday, per Accuweather.com. Using various criteria, a field of 37 will show up. Hat tip goes to gear queen Saiki Fujita, who turned 35 on Sunday and got into this event for the first time since 2014.
I think the last two rounds are on NTV (Japan time) -
There will also be LIVE broadcasts every day (Japan time) -
Thu & Fri - 8:30 AM
Sat & Sun - 8 AM
One of the channels carrying the live stuff is HULU. I have no idea how to use HULU for this. As of now, there's no special link or button to click on at the event website for HULU. YouTube worked last year ... try this search:
phil: the match with koiwai and ishikawa is the kyocera phoenix challenge held every year around this time.... ritsuko ryu is always one of the players since she has sponser with kyocera... in years past they usually had at least one player from the pga; one year it was koepka and also hideki matsuyama...
there is probably at least four shows now since it started back when... its a difficult show to find online. they only play 4 or 5 holes... would love to have the link if you have it...

With a field of 37, Yui teed off alone at #1, a par four of 370 yards. She pushed it into the right rough ... I think Mr. Shimuzu is on her bag. Shibuno and Tanaka are next ... live video below is working perfectly:
I'm back from my parents' place and I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving. Turned on the "live" video and Shibuno went into first place with a birdie at #7 ... but Furue went crazy and is now tied with her ... and Shin went nuts, she's just one shot back.
Minami Katsu stunk it up Thursday and received the solo tee time booby prize on Friday.
There are a few surviving videos from Round Two, but I don't know if any have the two par-5 eagles on the back nine by Ayaka Furue. One of them was 17 yards from a bunker at #11 and the other was 32 yards from off the green at #13.
I wonder which Yui Kawamoto will show up the third round. The one with five birdies one bogey after two early bogeys first round. Or the one that hit four fairways, with thirty five putts and bogeys on four of the last five holes.
