Ariya Jutanugarn shot a nine-under-par on the final round to win the Honda LPGA Thailand golf tournament at the Siam Country Club in Pattaya today, May 9th.
Having hit a flawless 63 under-par for four consecutive days, the 25-year-old Thai champion had beaten her fellow Thai national Atthaya Thitikul to win the 1.6 million USD tournament.
Speaking after, Ariya said that she was happy with her performance and today’s results. Additionally, she was very delighted as she won the championship that Thai people have been waiting for for a long time.
She happily said: “I’ve been waiting for so long and finally I got it so I’m really proud of myself. I am always very happy to be here.”
“I had a tough time the last two years. Sometimes, I tell myself I want to rest and stop for a while. But then, I know I cannot give up as I need to try harder and one day, that win will come again.”
Atthaya, meanwhile, stated that she was also happy to be able to come so close to a win at a major competition in her home country.
“This is like a new experience for me, having come so close to a win,” she said. “But I’m already feeling very proud to be here and it’s always amazing to be playing at home,” she told the press.
