LPGA pros finishing strong for Japan


RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – Three Japanese players were among the top 10 starting Friday’s second round at the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

Mika Miyazato started tied for third, Chie Arimura tied for fifth and Momoko Ueda tied for 10th.

Every player in the field has the ability to help Japan recover from the devastation there with strong finishes this week. Aces, birdies and eagles over the final two holes of the Kraft Nabisco Championship will aid in helping the recovery.

Mission Hills Country Club and ClubCorp are donating $100 for every birdie, $500 for every eagle and $1,000 for every hole-in-one over the final two holes on the Dinah Shore Tournament Course to UNICEF for Japan relief.

The 17th is a par 3, the 18th a par 5.
