I am always pleased to post about the JLPGA. The ladies on that tour are among the best players in the world and have produced players like Ai Miyazato and Yuri Fudoh. My entry today is especially thrilling for me as my favorite JLPGA player is Sakura Yokomine. The 2009 JLPGA Money List champion won her 19th JLPGA event at the 2013 Cyber Agent Ladies Golf Tournament. With all of the success Sakura has earned on the LPGA of Japan tour, she has been winless since the Resort Trust Ladies in 2011. To put how great a player Yokomine has been on the JLPGA and how much of a winning drought that is, think about it as though Yani Tseng suddenly didn’t win for 2 years on the LPGA. Or maybe Paula Creamer’s current winless drought on the LPGA would be similar. Sakura opened the tournament with back to back rounds of 68. She , and the rest of the field, still trailed 22-time JLPGA winner Mi-Jeong Jeon of South Korea. A 2-over final round by MJJ coupled with a 2-under round by Sakura left her at 10-under and Mi-Jeong at 8-under with three other players in a tie for 2nd place. I hope this is the start of Sakura Yokomine’s ascendancy back to the top of the JLPGA. One last thing before I move on to the media. Congratulations to Miki Saiki on winning back to back JLPGA events prior to the CyberAgent Ladies. I didn’t get around to posting about that but it deserves to be mentioned.
