You had to see it with your own eyes. She was amazing. She's 20 years old and this was her first LPGA event. Her first event outside of Japan ( where she's won twice this year as a rookie ). She knew nothing about the course. She showed up expecting a links course ( it was inland and tree lined ). Teeing off Thursday, no one knew who she was. By late Saturday she had won the crowd by firing a 30 on the back 9 taking a 2 shot lead. But how she did it.

Saturday after birdieing 17 to take a one shot lead she stops to autograph a glove for a young fan and poses for a picture with the youngster. Then she walks to the 18th tee, high fives everyone and birdies 18. Sunday comes and she's one over at the turn and trailing by 2. Back in Japan she's known as "the smiling Cinderella". It was looking like this Cinderella story was going to come crashing down. You know the chariot-pumpkin — whatever.

Not so fast. Unfazed she fired a 5 under 31 on the back 9 and wins by a stroke !! Smiling, laughing with high fives for the fans all the way. She was mugging for the TV cameras while tied for the lead. Having the time of her life. Walking to the 18th green with the score tied she bowed to the crowd ! Japanese style. She bowed to the crowd ! She was away and first to putt and needed a 20 foot birdie putt to win. She took no time over the ball and hammered it. It clanked it the back of the hole. Had it missed it would have rolled 10 feet past and maybe no playoff. BUT IT WENT IN !!! 30 seconds later she's rubbing the goosebumps on her arms. It all happened so fast. What a sight. Unforgettable.

I must say Lizette Salas played her heart out and was terrific. It was an amazing tournament with 5 players within 1 shot of the lead with 4 to play. World #1 Jin Young Ko almost won her 3rd major of the year.

I'd love to see Hinako competing regularly on the LPGA tour. As a fan I want to see the best against the best all of the time. I believe Hinako would be a star. She's a ray of sunshine. Bubbly. Effervescent. She plays quickly and confidently. She pipes her drives. She gets on with it. She'll never be on the clock. She'd fit right in the top 10 somewhere and make a strong field even stronger. A crying shame she's not coming stateside. Maybe it's all too sudden and she'll join the LPGA in 2 years. I sure hope so.

I expect to see her in the Olympics next year.

First international tournament, but she won. She beat all the world class players. It is a story and a kind of big wake – up call to the world. Positive mind and already made gratitude can lead to impossible result with glory. Huge congratulation to Hinako. You are the model of how humble Asian show our respect to people. Your nodding tells more than that. I became your big big fan. I want to see your lovely smile again on the field. Keep going!!! You are the best champion.
