Yuka Saso chooses Japanese nationality

 

 

MANILA, Philippines – Yuka Saso heralds her much-awaited return to the LPGA of Japan Tour with a tinge of sadness — as far as her Filipino fans and supporters are concerned — as the reigning US Women’s Open champion announced her decision to choose the Japanese nationality in two years’ time.

“I chose Japan because of its nationality law,” the 20-year-old Saso said on the eve of the Toto Japan Classic in Shiga Prefecture, her first JLPGA event since finishing tied for ninth in the Bridgestone Ladies last May.

Born to a Japanese father and Filipino mother, the 20-year-old Saso disclosed her citizenship preference to a Japanese news portal Wednesday.
