Comments from Mao Saigo
This is what Mao Saigo had to say about this season and next season!
Thank you so much for your support this season. It has been a very rewarding year. In addition to my first-ever tour victory, I won several tours and competed for the first time in LPGA majors. The world’s top golfers gather at the LPGA majors, so I learned a lot by playing with them.
During the off-season, I train with attention focused on the accuracy of my shots and extending the breadth of my technique. Next season, my challenge is to leave my mark both in Japan and other countries.
Comments from Shimadzu Staff in Charge
The staff at the Corporate Communication Department had the following to say.
We have high expectations for Mao Saigo, sponsored by Shimadzu from this season. She immediately attained her cherished goal of a first-ever victory in the opening round, and by the end, she had five wins, earning her a glittering 2nd position in the JLPGA Mercedes-Benz Player of the Year Ranking, a splendid performance. Additionally, she competed for the first time in LPGA majors, so this year was truly a leap forward.
2023 is the year of the hare (as the Japanese Zodiac). During the off-season, I hope she rests and refreshes her body and soul, to make further strides!
Please continue your warm support next season.
