Miyazato Wins Evian Masters, Donates Winnings to Homeland
The 26 year-old Miyazato played impressive golf throughout the weekend, culminating with a 2-under 70 on Sunday to hold off American Stacey Lewis. Lewis had won the Kraft Nabisco earlier in the year but succombed to a costly 16th hole in her final round to fall short of the title.
Miyazato would earn $487,000 with her victory this weekend, which she now plans on donating entirely to her homeland of Japan. According to statements released from the Associated Press, Miyazato was still deciding on her total contribution in the donation.
"I haven't decided yet, whether it will be all of the amount or some of it," she said. "This year I was playing for Japan."
