Meet: Yusaku Miyazato

2018 is a very exciting year for Lyle & Scott golf, not only are we official knitwear supplier to the British Open for the second year running, our golf ambassador, Yusaku Miyazato, will be playing at the US Masters, one of golf’s most prestigious tournaments, in a few weeks time.

Yusaku is one of the most successful golfers currently playing on the Japan Golf Tour, and finished 2017 in the Official Golf World Ranking Top 50, securing qualification to the 2018 US Masters.

This will be Yusaku’s first appearance at the US Masters, and the sixth time he has appeared at a major championship. His most successful being his appearance at the 2016 US Open, where he finished tied in 23rd place. With a current world ranking of 57, and a number 1 ranking on the Japan Golf Tour, we’re hoping for further success on US soil this time around.

If you’re settling down to watch the Masters (and why wouldn’t you be). Keep an eye out for Yusaku.
