This one starts Thursday for a field of 120 ... top-60 plus ties make the cut. Hori One and Hori Two (defending champ) will be there, along with Ayaka Furue. Two of the 2022 ANWA players will be here, Rin Yoshida and Rina Tatematsu. After playing this one, Chairwoman Mao and Yuna Nishimura will head for Evian. This is the 19th straight week that the JLPGA is in action ... they'll take next week off before playing another 19 straight weeks to complete the season.
I slept through my alarm and missed all but the last 15 minutes of the broadcast ... but, it didn't have the important stuff anyway ... specifically, Yuna Nishimura rolling in bombs all over the front nine (see highlight video) -
Yuna Nishimura is following Ayaka Furue on a parallel course ... both are at six career wins ... in 2022, Yuna is 18th in GIR and 1st in Putts per GIR ... during 2020-21, Furue was 20th in GIR and 1st in Putts per GIR.
