Queen Ariya Reigns Supreme!
Thailand’s super-star Ariya Jutanugarn (pictured) led an Asian onslaught at the Ladies Scottish Open.
The Thai’s winning performance not only won her the Scottish Open but she also strongly positioned herself to end the year as the top player in women’s professional golf.
Today’s win was Ariya’s third victory of the season – she fired a final round 5-uner par, 66 to win at 13-under par, one-stroke ahead of Australia’s South Korean-born Minjee Lee.
Ariya, who leads every major statistical category and season-long race on the LPGA Tour, is projected to take the most prestigious title of them all. The current world No.3 is expected to overtake Inbee Park at No.1 in the Rolex Rankings following her win. It’s a rank that she held once before during a two-week stretch in June 2017.
The 22-year old Thai currently tops the money list, nearly U.S.1 million dollars ahead of Nasa Hataoka at No. 2. She leads the Rolex Player of the Year race and the Race to the CME Globe. She also leads the Tour in scoring average, birdies, putting average and top 10s. Jutanugarn’s game is unstoppable.
