Natsuka Hori Wins 2013 AXA Ladies

Natsuka Hori, 2013 AXA Ladies winner

Natsuka Hori fired a clean 3-birdie 69 to win the 2013 AXA Ladies Golf Tournament in Miyazaki with a 14-overall score. The real story of the tournament was Hori’s second round, however. The 20-year old fired an 8-under 64 that included a blistering 7-under front 9 which saw her go out in 29. She came back to earth a bit on the back 9, but those 7 birdies in 9 holes had her on pace for history. Not only is this Natsuka’s first win, it’s her first top 10 ever. Her previous career best was T15 at the 2012 Resort Trust Ladies. She picks up 14.4 million yen (around 152,842 USD as of 3-31-13) for the victory.

  1. What at impressive tour the JLPGA is – I think Mike Whan would be looking at the gallery and media attendance with envy.

    • Agreed. And that’s not even one of their Majors and still the JLPGA pulls in the crowds and coverage.
