Evian Masters, final day

The last round of the Evian Masters was amazing and the icing on the cake was Ai's seventh LPGA title.

Japanese sports world has brought some happiness and relieve to a country which was devastated several months ago by a tsunami and an earthquake. Ai is one of the most concern Japanese athletes, therefore she'll donate some or even all of her winner's check, which only shows how devoted she is to her country.

Back to golf, the tourney was a complete success and now I understand why players speak so highly of it. All of them displayed their A game and proof of it was the star studded leader board we had on Sunday: Miyazato, Pettersen, IK Kim, Lewis, to name a few.

Competition was fierce, but Ai showed that her mental side is one of the strongest on tour and held off Stacy Lewis in-style. Add her parents' company to the picture and you'll have one more reason to be unstoppable.

People showed how much they love her, while Japanese reporters burst into joy, which is pretty understandable since they have followed Miyazato closely from her rookie season on the LPGA, back in 2005.

Now, about all that surrounds the tourney, people is amazing, everybody is so welcoming and the whole town surrenders to the event. Volunteers, organizers, restauranteurs and hoteliers show their appreciation to everyone who visits Évian-les-Bains to get a glimpse of the world's best women golfers.

I'm sure that in 2013, when this tournament becomes a major, it'll be huge and will surely become one of the favorite and most memorable Grand Slams.

Finally, thank you all for reading the blog, as well as the adventures of this who writes!
