LPGA's 3 Japanese players return to Tour

LPGA's 3 Japanese players return to Tour

Three Japanese players are returning to the LPGA Tour this week, and they're hoping to channel their grief for their earthquake-ravaged homeland into fundraising for disaster relief.
Ai Miyazato, Momoku Ueda and Mika Miyazato were all in Japan when the earthquake and tsunami hit March 11. They're all playing in the Kia Classic in suburban Los Angeles this week.
Ai Miyazato is from southern Japan, but went to high school in northern Sendai, which was flattened by the tsunami.
The players have given money to set up a fundraising website for a nonprofit relief organization.
They also designed buttons with a logo in Japanese reading "Never Give Up." They'll distribute the buttons to other golfers this week.
