Sakura was introduced to the game by her mother, who was a big fan of Japanese legend Ai Miyazato, and encouraged Sakura to attend golf school.

Having taken up the game at age 8, she enjoyed an illustrious amateur career around Hokkaido, where she was born and raised.

Although Sakura is yet to enter the winners’ circle on the LPGA, she has become a serial contender, having finished runner-up no less than 11 times, including at the Chukyo Bridgestone Ladies Open, Century 21 Ladies Championship and Golf 5 Ladies Pro Golf Championship this year.

One of Team Japan’s most consistent performers, she’s expected to be ever present in the Team Japan line-up at the Amata Friendship Cup!
