Momoko Ueda finishes16-under to take USLPGA Tour Mizuno Classic

SHIMA, Japan - Japan’s Momoko Ueda birdied the third hole in a playoff against China’s Feng Shanshan to win the USLPGA Tour Mizuno Classic golf tournament yesterday and regain the title she claimed in 2007.

Starting the day with a three-stroke lead, Ueda sank four birdies against one bogey for a 69 and a three-round total of 16-under-par 200.

Feng carded a bogey-free seven birdies, catching up with Ueda with a birdie on the 17th hole, before going into the playoff. It was the 25-year-old Ueda’s second title on the U.S. tour and ninth on the Japan tour, earning herself the winner’s check of $180,000.

Choi Na-Yeon of Korea finished third on 201, followed by Catriona Matthew of Scotland, who shared fourth place with Taiwan’s Teresa Lu on 203.
