Mina Harigae

Mina Harigae led the US Women's Open in 2022 after a superb opening-round 64, and shared the halfway pace with Minjee Lee by adding a 69.

However, it was Lee who went three clear in the third round and finished four clear of the Californian, for whom second place represented easily her best performance in a major championship so far.

The daughter of Japanese parents, who run a sushi restaurant, she played in the Junior Ryder Cup, Junior Solheim Cup and Curtis Cup before turning professional in 2009.

Harigae instantly became the leading money-winner on the LPGA’s Futures Tour following three wins, but it was not until 2021 that she had her first runner-up finish on the main circuit and was a Solheim Cup wild card selection.
