Tavatanakit storms to first European Tour title as Hull finishes third

Patty Tavatanakit won her first European Tour title with victory at the Aramco Saudi Ladies International as England’s Charley Hull finished in a tie for third.

Tavatanakit came into the final round with a three-shot lead and was not challenged on Sunday as she carded seven under 65 to match her first-round score.

Germany’s Esther Henseleit was seven shots off the lead in second as Hull tied on nine under overall to take joint-third with Japan’s Minami Katsu.

Hull came into the final day on seven under and four shots behind Tavatanakit but three bogeys on the sixth, 10th and 16th allowed Katsu to jump into the top three after she recorded the joint-best score of the day with a round of 65.

No one could get close to Tavatanakit though, whose only other professional win came at the then-named 2021 ANA Inspiration – the opening women’s major of the year.

“It’s been a long time since I played this good. It’s very emotional, with how I overcame that. I just took it one day at a time and I worked really hard to get here and play so solid all week.

“I want to thank my team. I’m so grateful for the people I have around me in my life. Without them, I wouldn’t be here. I’m soaking it all in. It’s just incredible, unreal.”
