Teen sensation Atthaya Thitikul captured back-to-back victories on the Thai LPGA Tour following a three-stroke win in the seventh leg of the Singha-SAT Championship at the Singha Park in Khon Kaen on Saturday.
Playing in overcast conditions at the par-72 6,389-yard course, the 17-year-old shot five birdies against a lone bogey on the 13th hole to sign off with a final 68 and a total 11-under-par 205. She beat Chonlada Chayanan and Prima Thammaraks — the overnight co-leader with Atthaya — by three strokes.
“I was playing so well on the front nine and I made only one bad shot on the back by hitting into the pool [13th hole],” said the two-time Ladies European Tour winner, who also dominated the previous circuit in Nakhon Ratchasima province last month.
“It’s another good tournament where I created a lot of opportunities for myself. I didn’t come here setting a goal of winning. I just wanted to keep getting better and better,” added the teenager, who dedicated this win to her late mother who passed away when she was a child.
Atthaya is now on top of the Thai LPGA Order of Merit rankings with the most number of wins this season. She had also won the third leg of the tour in Prachinburi province in July.
Atthaya took home Bt120,000 for the title, while the two runners-up took home Bt62,500 each.
