Mizuno’s Erika Hara confirmed her outstanding potential by winning the Japan Women’s Open Championship. Erika Hara (21), who had a four-stroke lead after three rounds, shot a four-under 68 to finish at 272. The tournament was held at the 6761 yard / par 72 Classic Golf Club King Queen Course in Miyawaka City, Fukuoka Prefecture.
The win was recorded on Hara’s first outing with a new set up of JPX921 Hot Metal irons.
Chris Voshall, Mizuno USA spoke for Mizuno;
As far as we know this is the first tour win for our JPX921 Hot Metal irons. It came as a little bit of a surprise to hear that Erika had put them in the bag last week – but the younger players are more open minded to whatever technology has to offer. We’re so proud of Erika. She has incredible potential and is such a great person to work with as well. She has a really big future in the game.
