Nasa Hataoka is adding to her win total.
The 22-year-old shot a final-round 4-under 67 to finish at 16-under and claim the title at the Walmart Northwest Arkansas Championship. Minjee Lee finished second, just one shot back of Hataoka.
The two started the day tied at 12-under, with Lee finishing with a final-round 68.
It’s Hataoka’s fifth title on the LPGA Tour and her second of 2021. In all, she made just two bogeys in 54 holes.
Saturday saw Hataoka nail her second ace in as many days, becoming just the fifth player in LPGA Tour history to make two hole-in-ones in the same tournament.

“Overall I was solid all three days,” Lee said. “I missed a couple of birdie opportunities today that I probably should have made. Under the circumstances Nasa did play really well today. I’m just disappointed with my second shot on 18, but I still had a great week.”
