Ai Miyazato Opens Her Bag
Winless after four years on the LPGA Tour with the weight of a country on her shoulders, Ai Miyazato - Japan's sweetheart - finally emerged victorious. Surviving the tournament's third sudden-death playoff in as many years, Miyazato became the second Rolex First-Time Winner at the Evian Masters Presented by Société Générale in three years. She defeated Sweden's Sophie Gustafson (71-66-67-70) in a one-hole, sudden-death playoff after both players birdied the 72nd hole of regulation to finish at 14-under-par 274.
"I feel very happy at the moment," said the 24-year-old Miyazato after earning $487,500 of the $3.25 million purse. "I was dreaming about this when I was young, so my dream has almost come true. I made a great birdie on the number two, and I feel really like confidence after that. So, I mean, I was really play good because I hit fairways, keep hitting the fairways, and I hit the greens."
