Ai Miyazato rallies to win NW Arkansas title

ROGERS, Arkansas - Ai Miyazato’s closing birdie on Sunday provided exactly what the Japanese star needed to get over the victory hump at the NW Arkansas Championship.

Miyazato shot a 6-under 65 to overcome a five-shot deficit and hold off a crowded leaderboard for her second LPGA Tour victory of the year and ninth overall. Ai Miyazato had seven birdies and one bogey in the final round to finish one stroke ahead of Mika Miyazato and Azahara Munoz. Mika Miyazato had a 67, and Munoz closed with a 65.

Veronica Felibert, the rookie from Venezuela who opened the day with a four-shot lead, shot a 72 to tie for fourth at 10 under, along with Korea’s Park In-bee. Korea’s Seo Hee-kyung and Amy Yang came in sixth and seventh.
