SORENSTAM, Davies, Miyazato. Japanese 26-year- old Ai Miyazato joined the most elite company at the Evian Masters, becoming the third player to win the soon-to-be fifth major event twice. It was Miyazato’s second win in three years at the French tournament and the victory broke an 11-month win drought for the current world No. 6. There were no dramatic collapses or final-round charges, just solid golf from most of the top 10 finishers, with Miyazato’s two-under 70 enough to see off American Stacy Lewis, who also scored 70 to finish two shots back at 13-under. Two bogies at the par- 4 12th and par-3 14th were the only blips on an otherwise faultless weekend for Miyazato, while Lewis trailed by just one shot until she came undone at the 16th, ending her chances of an Evian win. Adding to the emotion of her victory, Miyazato pledged to donate most of her winnings from the tournament—one of the Tour’s richest—to the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. “I haven’t decided yet what to do exactly, whether it’ll be all the amount or a sum of it, but I’ll definitely be making a donation from this earning,” she said. “ The disaster did affect me badly and the people back home are never far from my thoughts. “ This was already a very special place for me. It was my first LPGA win in 2009 and now I have even more great memories. Today I stayed patient and it worked. I felt comfortable all day.” Also paying her own tribute was sixth-placed Norwegian Suzann Pettersen, who wore a black armband to remember those killed in the Oslo massacre on Friday. She closed with a 68 and was the best of the European contingent. OTG “THIS WAS ALREADY A VERY SPECIAL PLACE FOR ME.
