Japanese teen Nasa Hataoka wins NW Arkansas Championship

ROGERS, Ark. — Nasa Hataoka didn't have the star power in her final grouping at the NW Arkansas Championship.

What the Japanese teenager did have by the time she was finished was her first victory on the LPGA Tour.

Hataoka shot an 8-under 63 to run away with the tournament at Pinnacle Country Club on Sunday. The 19-year-old did so in record-breaking fashion, finishing with a tournament-best 21-under 192 total — three better than the mark set last year by So Yeon Ryu.
