Yuka Saso, the 2021 U.S. Women’s Open champion, tees off today in the Women’s Individual Stroke Round 1 event to start her campaign for the Philippines’ first medal in Olympic golf.

The Philippines’ golf phenom is currently ranked 8th in the women’s world rankings, thanks to her historic triumph in the 76th edition of the United States Women’s Championships.

The Filipino-Japanese golf sensation officially booked her Tokyo Olympics berth in June, joining golfers Juvic Pagunsan and Bianca Pagdanganan after completing the KPMG Women’s Professional Gold Association (PGA) Tournament in the United States.

In the 2018 Asian Games, Pagdanganan won a bronze medal in the women’s event and a gold medal in the team event with Saso and Lois Kaye Go. She also bagged individual and team gold medals at the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.
