From a California photo shoot with Ai Miyazato before her country's devastating earthquake to playing golf with gators (accidentally) to a whirlwind journey with Yani Tseng, our <strong>Beth Ann Baldry</strong> shares her year in golf.
Ishikawa and Miyazato often have expressed mutual admiration for each other, but this week such pleasantries might have to be set aside. They’re battling each other on that all-important front: TV ratings. Both are competing on home soil in televised contests that promise to wear out TV remote controls: Miyazato is the featured attraction in the Japan Women’s Open, while Ishikawa is the man who will add the fizz to the Coca-Cola Tokai Classic on the men’s tour.
Ai Miyazato moved into position for her third victory of the season, shooting a 2-under 71 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead over long-hitting playing partners Michelle Wie and Brittany Lincicome in the Tres Marias Championship.
