Which is this.
This is Ai Miyazato, she's a golfer and she's Japan's biggest athlete. In her first 2 years on the LPGA of Japan she won 11 times and also captured the Womens World Cup of Golfwith partner Rui Kitada. She has taken Japan by storm and has brought lady's golf in Japan to a level it's never experienced. When she's in contention to win she routinely outdraws the men's golf telecasts. Impressive. She's also 20 years old (Jun 19 85) and 5 foot 1. Not bad.
And as of today (Dec. 2 05) she's on track to take America by storm. Through 3 days of 5 at the LPGA Tour Qualifying Tournament shes leading by 7 strokes and looks very good (knock wood). The top 24 finishers at the Qualifying Tournament get full status on the LPGA tour. Now I'm not saying she's going to repeat her success on the Japanese tour in America but for Japanese golf and for Japan it's a huge deal. The Japanese are obsessed with their athletes playing abroad (Ichiro, Hidetoshi Nakata) and it will continue with Ai. It's a great thing for the Japanese and if she does well here on the LPGA tour it will be great for America too.
