Momoko Ueda wins by two shots

Momoko Ueda became the first Japanese player to win the Mizuno Classic in nine years, closing with a 5-under 66 on Sunday for a two-stroke victory over American Reilley Rankin and Sweden's Maria Hjorth

Ueda finished with a 13-under 203 total on the Kinetsu Kashikojima Country Club course and earned $210,000 for her first LPGA Tour victory. Hiromi Kobayashi was the last Japanese winner, taking the 1998 tournament at Musashigaoka.

Rankin and Hjorth, the 1999 champion, closed with 67s.

Shinobu Moromizato (67) was fourth at 8 under. English star Laura Davies, tied with Ueda for the second-round lead after a costly penalty Saturday, shot a 72 to tie for fifth at 7 under with Mi Hyun Kim (71), Chie Arimura (70) and Mie Nakata (71).

Davies was penalized two strokes in the second round for putting from the wrong spot on the 14th hole. She forgot to return her ball to its original spot after moving her mark because it was in a competitor's line.
