Miyazatos roller coaster ride


PITTSFORD, N.Y. – Ai Miyazato is the hottest roller coaster in women’s golf.

She's capable of soaring one moment, diving the next.

Miyazato has four victories this season, but she’s got some work to do today to avoid missing her third cut of the year and missing cuts in back-to-back majors and missing cuts in two of the last three weeks.

With a 4-over-par 76 Thursday, Miyazato is tied for 97th with play beginning Friday. The low 70 and ties advance to the weekend. Miyazato, seeking to win her first major, also missed the cut at the season opening major, the Kraft Nabisco Championship. She’s trying to avoid missing the cut in her last three LPGA Championships.
