Kraft Nabisco Championship: Mika Miyazato shares lead
Miyazato birdied the par-three 17th hole (her drive landed six feet from the cup, the putt was perfect) to finish at five-under par 67. Miyazato is playing the season's first major for the third time; her best finish was last year, a tie for 40th.
Miyazato, 21, is one of a trio of Japanese LPGA players (along with Ai Miyazato, who is no relation to Mika, and Momoko Ueda) who have designed a logo they are wearing on their golf hats to show solidarity with Japan as the country recovers from this month's earthquake, tsunami and nuclear-reactor damage.
