As Neale Donald Walsch said, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” For Moeka Nishihata, her comfort zone ended at the 6,302nd mile. And her new life began the 6,303rd mile. The Epson Tour rookie has traveled away from her home in Japan to the United States in order to pursue her career in golf. After playing on the JLPGA qualifying tour (the Step-Up Tour) for six years, Nishihata decided it was time to tee it up in America.
Traveling to the United States meant Nishihata would have many obstacles to overcome on her journey. These challenges, like not speaking English, knowing the culture, or having friends and family to keep her company did not scare her away from leaving home.
