Atthaya Thitikul made history with her second Ladies European Thailand Championship win at the age of just 16, Joe Hughes has the lowdown

Ladies European Thailand Championship report: What happened at Phoenix Gold Golf Club?

Teenager Atthaya Thitikul made history as she won her second Ladies European Thailand Championship in impressive style.

The Thai 16-year-old, who still hold amateur status, won her only other LET event at this tournament in 2017 by two strokes.

This time around, thanks to a course record 63 on Saturday, she stormed to a 5 shot victory over Esther Henseleit.

Thitikul took the course apart in astonishing fashion during her third round – her 9-under total leaving her eightΒ shots clear of the field heading into the final day.

Despite the considerable gap, Thitikul did not let up on Sunday, and her attacking style of play led to a final round 67 and a winning score of 22-under.

Ladies European Thailand Championship report: Talking point

The race to top the LET Order of Merit continues to be hotly contested with several players in the chase for the first place again producing brilliant performances.

LET rookie, Esther Henseleit, who began the week in third tallied up yet another top 10 finish. If it was not forΒ Thitikul’s remarkable play, she could well have claimed her first victory.

Marianne Skarpnord went into the week second only to spaniard, Nuria Iturrios, who has won twice on tour already this season.

The Norwegian claimed her fourth LET victory in Australia early this year and finished tied 4th this week.
