Miyazato settles for second again


Ai Miyazato had to settle for her second runnerup finish this season, losing by one stroke to world No. 1 Yani Tseng at the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup on Sunday.

Miyazato, who shared the overnight lead with the Taiwanese, carded a 3-under-par 69 in the final round, leaving her in a tie for second with South Korea’s Choi Na Yeon on 17-under 271 at Wildfire Golf Club.

“I gave myself a lot of chances with my shots today, but I wasn’t able to knock down putts when I needed them,” said Miyazato.
