Women’s golf in Japan has entered the final stages of the season.

While the “Millennium Generation” of 21-year-olds Mao Saigo and Miyu Yamashita are leading the tour, there is one player who is attracting attention for her brilliant play and bubbling smile. That is 22-year-old Yuri Yoshida, nicknamed “Cosmetics Watchdog.

Yoshida, who passed her first professional test in 2019, has been active on the first division tour with two wins to date, and tied for third place at the Japan Women’s Open Golf Championship, the third women’s major championship in Japan, held from September 29 to October 2. She has 15 top-10 finishes this season, the second most among all players. She is ranked 6th in the money ranking and Mercedes ranking.

He is ranked sixth in both the money and Mercedes standings. In fact, his average putt count ranks 5th among all players, and his recovery rate is 4th, which is also shown in the data. Last season, Yoshida often lost his score on par-3 holes. This year, that has improved dramatically.

This season, she has recorded 2nd place finishes in five events, including the Banteling Ladies Open, one of the four majors. Fans are expecting her to win more and more tournaments in order to break away from the silver collector.

In June of this year, she threw out the first pitch for the first time. Although the ball ended up bouncing, she smiled after the pitch and said, “It was a very enjoyable and good experience.

In addition to his playing, he also attracts fans with his charming looks.

In June of this year, she threw out the first pitch at a professional baseball game between Lotte and Seibu. She also frequently updates her SNS, and at the end of September, she posted a dance video on TikTok in a JK costume. Comments flooded in from non-golf fans saying, “Too cute! and comments have been pouring in from people other than golf fans. I also met a student this year who said, “I saw Yoshida on SNS and thought she was cute, so I came to watch her play even though I don’t know anything about golf. She is a self-confessed cosmetics lover and has over 110,000 followers on Instagram. She is attracting attention not only for her ability but also for her visual appeal.

There are eight tournaments remaining on the women’s tour. With her combination of popularity and ability, we look forward to Yoshida’s first win of the season.

She also finished second at the Shiseido Ladies Open in July. Her challenge for the future is to improve her driver distance, which ranks 36th among all players.
Her putting has been in great shape this season. It is a major factor behind her good performance.
Yoshida is a fan favorite not only for her precise shots, but also for her visual appeal. There are only a few matches left, but we look forward to the day when she shows us her best smile along with the championship trophy.
