Ai Miyazato (-3) said that she grew up playing in windy conditions on a regular basis in her hometown of Okinawa, Japan. That coupled with five years of experience playing in the LPGA’s annual visit to Taiwan allows Miyazato to feel comfortable when the weather become breezy.
“It’s actually nothing change,” the former No. 1 said of her approach to the wind. “You know, because over here you know it’s going to be windy for some point. I was actually expecting this weather, you know, but first couple days wasn’t really windy. So I’m like, Hmm, I need wind. I grew up in Okinawa and Okinawa is really windy place, too. So I kind of grew up to playing in the wind. I really like it.”
