Miyazato Wins NW Arkansas Championship, Lewis T19
ROGERS, Ark. — Ai Miyazato carded a six-under 65 on Sunday to win the Northwest Arkansas Championship.
Miyazato finished 12 under par, one shot ahead of Azahara Munoz and Mika Miyazato. Ai was in the second-to-last group and birdied 18 to drop to 12 under. Then, in the final group, Mika had a birdie putt to force a playoff, but pushed it right, giving the championship to Ai.
Veronica Felibert, who had led since the first round, slipped to a tie for fourth after a one-over 72 Sunday.
Former Razorback Stacy Lewis continued to struggle with the putter, shooting 70 today to finish four-under for the tournament, tied for nineteenth.
The next stop for most of the players is the U.S. Women’s Open in Kohler, Wis. next week.
