Firstly, I feel really good about having gotten through the day maintaining my concentration and a healthy amount of nerves.

As for getting results when I want results(!!), well, there are lots of issues for me to work on regarding that theme, but I am concentrating on it, so I think now it’s really just important to make my own rhythm[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

Tomorrow is another day.

In good times and in bad, I really want to focus on the importance of maintaining the right distance as I play my round[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

I’m enjoying Hokkaido and eating the delicious local treats[手(チョキ)]

I’m back on the Japan tour for the first time in so ages!!

I’m going to enjoy myself, and play fearlessly[手(パー)]

Hokkaido might be quite a trip, but if you can make it to the course, I’d love to have you here[黒ハート]

Finally, for some reason everyone seems to worry about me excessively but…

Yes, OK, I am frustrated with not being able to deliver results, but my heart is full of vitality[手(チョキ)]
I’m fine!! Right now I’m doing my groundwork, spreading lots of seeds!!

Now I just have to let nature take its course!!

I’m doing what I’ve got to do, so a win will come along.

That’s what I believe!

Firstly, I got through the first day.

Wow, that was a tough day!!

I think I did pretty well to hang in there [ぴかぴか(新しい)]

Having finished with a birdie will pay off tomorrow!!

It’s an early start tomorrow so I’m off to bed now [ぴかぴか(新しい)]

Tomorrow will be a new and different day, but I’m prepared to fight for it!!

Everyone thank you for cheering me on, even though it’s probably late for you[exclamation]

Hi there☆

This week is cold, the wind is strong, and there are lots of bunkers to contend with…so it’s difficult!!
I think I’m in for a hard week, both physically and mentally [ぴかぴか(新しい)]
Actually I messed up just before I finished typing this blog entry, as I was doing a final check, and deleted the whole lot so I’m redoing it from scratch [がく~(落胆した顔)]
To be honest I don’t really remember what I wrote, so it’s turning out to be completely different [わーい(嬉しい顔)][あせあせ(飛び散る汗)]

I had dinner with Yani again today [ぴかぴか(新しい)]
Also this particular person who must not be forgotten:


He’s Calloway staff [るんるん]
He’s a rather relaxed, easy going person, shall we say…everything’s very approximate…

About as much so as Gucchi my previous caddie [ウッシッシ]
Of course I do mean that in a good way [るんるん]He has to leave on Friday though…[右斜め下][右斜め下][右斜め下]

This week there are lots of Japanese players, and Ezure-san is here as Shinobu’s caddie, so I think I will be able to enjoy this different atmosphere!!

Unfortunately Q-san can’t be here this week…

The ground is so hard this week, and it’s cold, and it tires you out physically like you’ve done the biggest workout ever in the gym, but it’s all experience I’m going to look at it as a good opportunity to get to know my own body better, and give it my best shot[ウッシッシ]

But boy does this look like a tough week ahead [右斜め上]
I’ve really gotta give it my all!!

Firstly, congratulations to Ai on her win!!

There were more Japanese participants than usual, with Fuji TV broadcasting the competition, and Ms Higuchi, Director of the JLPGA in attendance, and Ai won in front of all of them[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

Ai, I knew you had it in you!!

I’m sure it was, on the other hand, a long and tough road.
But the goal that was waiting was magnificent, and I think you had a wonderful time surrounded by so many people!!
I think you were really well prepared[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

Ai always goes ahead as a role model to me and the other younger golfers.
When we hit the field, then naturally we are rivals, but I really respect Ai, and really like her as a person[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

I just want to say “congratulations” from the bottom of my heart!!

As for me, the number of boggies is something for me to work on, but I had my first experience of six birdies in a row, and other than day two, I was in the 60s…which I guess I’m pretty happy with[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

At the same time, somewhere deep in my heart, I thought, hmmm, yep, winning is great[黒ハート]

I think I have received some good stimulation[ぴかぴか(新しい)]
Momo will be doing her best too!!

Once again it’s me and Yani…[わーい(嬉しい顔)][あせあせ(飛び散る汗)]


We’ve been friends since last year, but this year in particular I am always hanging out with Yani and Sherrie (Yani’s Caddie)!!

She teaches me English, takes me to great restaurants…
Yani always says


Hmm…It’s a word I often used to use in my high school days[ほっとした顔][ぴかぴか(新しい)]

I guess I did pretty well controlling myself today…[わーい(嬉しい顔)][あせあせ(飛び散る汗)]
Well, to be honest I could have pushed myself a bit further but I managed some good pars, and even when I got the last one in the pond, I didn’t fall to pieces, and still finished on par…[あせあせ(飛び散る汗)]

There was that final second I wasn’t happy with though[ボケーっとした顔][あせあせ(飛び散る汗)]

Tomorrow, like today, I need to go in focused and maintain my own strong will throughout!!
I’ll be going back to Japan for the tour there, and I plan to participate in AXA and NEC, so it’s not long until I’ll be reunited with everyone back home in Japan[クローバー]
I believe it’s hot in Japan, but if you think of it as good for the figure, I guess you’ll all get through![ほっとした顔][黒ハート]

I’m in France, so why is there such an Asian-looking object …?

Allow me to explain.

It’s because we’ve eating at Vietnamese-influenced Chinese restaurant every day[るんるん]

I’m here again today for a meal[どんぶり]with Yani and all of Team Momo.

She has such a good personality[右斜め上]
She’s younger than me but as a golfer she is very mature…[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

The opening day today was a reasonably good start[ぴかぴか(新しい)]
Tomorrow I’ll be playing tomorrow’s golf!!
Just focus on the shot in front of me…[ぴかぴか(新しい)]
Good night[黒ハート]

Hi there☆
Yesterday I had a nice girls’ talk with Ai over ice-cream, and tomorrow we’re together in the pairings[右斜め上]
This is my first time to go around with Ai Miyazato, and I’m hoping it’s a good round…for our whole group[ぴかぴか(新しい)]

Anyway, yesterday I took a boat[船]o Switzerland, which is just 30 minutes away!!
I had been once last year too, so didn’t plan on going this time but my Papa’s birthday is not far off, so we decided to go to Switzerland together and get him a watch[るんるん]

However, my Papa is apparently rather particular, and couldn’t find one one that was just right, and ended up saying he’ll take his time looking around in Japan and then decide…[がく~(落胆した顔)]

I was thinking “but we’re in Switzerland now !”[がく~(落胆した顔)][パンチ] but I gave in quickly[ボケーっとした顔][黒ハート]and said, OK, fine[わーい(嬉しい顔)][あせあせ(飛び散る汗)]
He is the breadwinner in our family after all[ぴかぴか(新しい)]
These special occasions can be the only chance you get to say “thank you”[ほっとした顔][あせあせ(飛び散る汗)]


Oh, I just snapped this shot as we passed a florist[カメラ]
The flowers in France are beautiful, and actually, if I hadn’t been a professional golfer, I might have been a florist myself![ぴかぴか(新しい)]that’s how much I have loved flowers ever since I was little[黒ハート]

I do recommend giving flowers as a present to someone special every now and then…!

Flowers really can make a girl happy[黒ハート]

Here’s my hote[ホテル][ほっとした顔][指でOK]


I really do love France[黒ハート]
The scenery and the air and the fashion are just the best[手(チョキ)]

There’s this natural kind of tension[ウィンク][手(チョキ)]
