Yokomine skips Munsingwear Ladies

Popular teenage golfer Sakura Yokomine will sit out this week’s Munsingwear Ladies Tokai Classic due to health problems, her management office said Wednesday.

Yokomine opted out of the three-day tournament at Ryosen Golf Club in Mie Prefecture beginning Friday after the 19-year-old complained of fatigue following her third-place finish last week at the Konica Minolta Cup.

According to her office, doctors have said Yokomine needs to rest for a week.
