ayaka matsumori's sister kyoka is on the entry list for jlpga protest....
Good pickup, I forgot that they were starting up the pro-test this month. Minami Levonowich (Kansas U., 2016) also passed one of the 1st round stages. I'm sure Mini Ting Ting will tee it up later ... there are three more 1st stage sites that haven't posted fields yet. With all the unknowns, I'm not following this closely, at least not until the finals in late June.
Rookie Rieru Shibusawa will tee it up for the first time 2021 ... she is getting endorsements and ink as she is a descendant of Shibusawa Eiichi, the "father of Japanese capitalism" (per Wikipedia) whose portrait will be on the ¥10000 note in 2024.
Play was suspended due to foul weather. The cut line is still at Even where it will probably stay ... no need for Solar (+4) to get up early on Sunday. Haruka Morita dropped out before the day started with a sore left foot.
