Tavatanakit claims first win since 2021 Major, goes wire-to-wire at Aramco Saudi Ladies International Presented by PIF

                       


After Tavatanakit’s Major win in her 2021 rookie season caught the headlines, the road back to the top of the leaderboard has been one littered with hardships, with the freshly crowned champion speaking frankly about mental health challenges. 

“It's been really difficult, but those struggles gave me a lot of strength,” Tavanakit reflected.  

“I learned a lot, and I grew a lot from it as well - looking back, I’m grateful for all the moments, and I wouldn’t change a thing.”  

“You go down [mentally], and you're down there to go up one day, and that’s kind of true with golf and life. I'm definitely getting the highs this week, and then we'll see what the future holds.” 

“But today, I went out there like I came to play golf, and I had a lot of fun today. Regardless of the outcome I told myself to enjoy it, and I really did.” 


 

Esther Heinseleit of Germany followed up a blistering seven-under-par 65 on day three with a solid three-under-par on the final day, asserting herself in second place and earning $450k from the lucrative prize fund. 

There was a late charge for Japan’s Minami Katsu, the eight-time LPGA tour of Japan winner who recorded her first professional win at the age of just 15 in 2014. 

Katsu followed up a front nine of four-under-par, with a run of four birdies to begin her back nine, before finishing seven-under-par after a bogey on the 16th hole. 

 

Meanwhile, England’s Charley Hull was unable to capitalise on her 68 from day three, but a respectable two-under-par was enough to lock in a T3 finish ahead of a big year for Hull, with Olympic aspirations in mind. 

The prestigious tournament lived up to its much-anticipated billing in Saudi Arabia’s capital, with the history making tournament attracting thousands of locals to Riyadh Golf Club across the four days.
