Shiho Oyama rode a 6 birdie, 2 bogey opening day effort to a 4-under lead after round 1 of the 2013 Mizuno Classic. The 36-year old Oyama is a 12-time JLPGA winner, although her last victory came in 2011 when she won her 2nd Masters GC Ladies. Her greatest year on the LPGA of Japan was in 2006. That year, Shiho-sama notched 5 JLPGA titles en route to finishing the year #1 on the money list with 166,290,957 JPY (around 1.6 million USD by 2013 conversion). Her money total in 2006 stood as a JLPGA record until broken by Sakura Yokomine in 2009. Oyama cannot get comfortable atop the leaderboard as there is a 9-way tie for 2nd 1 shot behind her. Among those right on her heels in 2nd is 2-time Mizuno champion (2008, 2010), Jiyai Shin. Also within striking distance 3 shots back is world #3 and defending champion, Stacy Lewis. Unfortunately, the world’s top 2 ranked players, Inbee Park and Suzann Pettersen, are not in the field this week. Their battle for the top ranking and top honors on the American LPGA (this event is co-sponsored by the LPGA and JLPGA) will have to wait for another tournament.
