Win at ShopRite LPGA Classic Gains Miyazato No. 1 Ranking…

Japan’s Ai Miyazato shot a 7-under 64 Sunday to win the ShopRite LPGA Classic.  She was 16-under for the 3-day tournament and finished ahead of M.J. Hur (-14), Inbee Park (-12) and three tied for fourth place (-11): Suzann Pettersen, Hee-Won Han and Katherine Hull.  Paula Creamer did a stellar job in her return, finishing in seventh place (-10).

This was Miyazato’s fifth win on the LPGA Tour in 2010.  The winner’s prize was $225,000, pushing Miyazato’s earnings this year to $830,238.  She has just taken over the No. 1 spot in the Rolex World Golf Rankings.

Also notable: Ai Miyazato sported the knee high socks that are a staple of Japanese fashion.
