Hataoka storms to victory

Japan’s Nasa Hataoka stormed to a commanding eight-shot victory by closing with a final-round 5-under-par 67 to win the 52nd LPGA Championship Konica Minolta Cup in Kobe yesterday. Victory for Hataoka was especially sweet as it was the world No. 9’s fifth and third major win on the Ladies Professional Golfers’ Association of Japan. The late charge by former world No. 1 Feng Shanshan did not materialize as the Chinese star signed off with an even-par 72 to share second place with Japan’s Aoi Ohnishi. Hataoka held an overnight two-shot advantage and had a winning total of 18-under 270. South Korea’s Park In-bee, another former world No. 1, finished in outright ninth place after a final-round 70.
