JAMES CITY – Standing between the Kingsmill clubhouse and the River Course's 18th hole grandstands following Wednesday's Pro-Am, Sakura Yokomine's caddy does some amateur translating.
Florian Rodriguez, the caddy, hesitates initially. He says his Japanese isn't great. He happens to be French, with a Spanish surname.
Yokomine will soon be paired with Californian Sydnee Michaels and Wei-Ling Hsu of Chinese Taipei.
Within 20 yards, three spectators sharing Filipino ancestry, soak in the scene the evening before the Championship tees off.
That's just a small taste of the international flavor the LPGA Tour offers on its annual trip to Williamsburg.
