A new star in the women’s golf world, Saki Baba, a 17-year-old coach reveals her true face “The opposite type to Ai Miyazato” | THE ANSWER

Saki Baba (Nippon Wellness High School 2nd year), who won the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship in women’s golf for the first time in 37 years as a Japanese, has improved her level through full-scale training that she started a year and a half ago. Under the guidance of Takashi Kamata, the trainer who was once in charge of Ai Miyazato, she mainly strengthened her core. She also said that she thickened her buttocks and the back of her thighs, making her hips rotate faster. However, Mr. Kamata said, “The degree of physical perfection is still about 30%,” and clearly stated that the current average driver shot of 270 yards will further increase. Because of her blessed material, she described Baba as “a person chosen by God.” (Interview and text: THE ANSWER editorial department, Michinari Yanagida)

Mr. Kamata said that he learned of Baba’s feat in Sendai, where he was staying.

“I stayed the next day after work and played golf, but I was so worried about Saki that I couldn’t even play myself (laughs). I made it through the long stretches well.”

I met Baba in the spring of 2021. It all started when a person close to Kantaro Naito, a male professional golfer contracted with Mr. Kamata, had contact with Baba’s father, Tetsuya. Tetsuya, who respects Miyazato, learned that Mr. Kamata used to coach Miyazato, and asked him, “I want you to see my daughter.” Mr. Kamata, who is committed to training young athletes, readily agreed.

“When Saki first came, she was just before entering high school, and she was even thinner than she is now. All the movements of the body are linked, but the most important thing is the core.In a car, it is the drive shaft that transmits the power of the engine.For that reason, we strengthen the core, including the hip joints and shoulder blades. I kept training.”

On top of that, from last fall to this spring, he said that he strengthened his muscles, focusing on the lower body, buttocks, and the back of the thighs. As a result, the buttocks became 6 centimeters thicker, the thighs became 4.5 centimeters thicker, and the hip rotation speeded up. The stability of the swing has also increased, and the driver flight distance has increased. Baba himself testified to this point in an interview with “THE ANSWER” in June.

“I hit about 200 yards when I was in 6th grade, but I wasn’t the best at flying among juniors of my generation. Since I started playing, my flight distance has increased a lot.”
