Hina Arakaki: Precocious Star Shines On JLPGA

Hina Arakaki

Just a little side-note from the 2013 Daikin Orchid Ladies Golf Tournament. Finishing in a tie for 28th at 5-under was 15-year old middle school student Hina Arakaki. Some say she is the next great player from Okinawa, following in the footsteps of the unrelated Miyazato non-sisters, Ai and Mika. She actually first played Daikin Orchid, which is held in Okinawa Prefecture, as a 12-year old elementary student. Not only that, she earned her way in through qualifying. No free pass for Hina. They are just getting younger and younger out there. Here is a video of Hina on the course training to be a world-class golfer and in the classroom hanging out with her friends.
