Nasa Hataoka Wins LA Open


Nasa Hataoka won the DIO Implant LA Open in a runaway, winning by 5-shots over Hannah Green. It seemed like Hataoka hit the dead center of every fairway and the win is her sixth on the LPGA Tour.

In the LPGA Golf Pool, Steve Schankula and Derek Lindeman each scored 38 points, to be the top point-earners for the week.
