Thai amateur sensation Atthaya Thitikul, a 16 year old from Ratchaburi Province, finished as the leading amateur at the AIG Women’s British Open. 

With rounds of 73, 68, 70, 73 she finished the championship in a tie for 29th place on four-under par 284 to earn The Smyth Salver.

This is the second year in a row that Thitikul has claimed the low amateur honour.  She is also the inaugural Women’s Amateur Asia-Pacific champion, and one of two amateurs to make the cut at the year’s final major.

Thitikul said “It’s awesome, I never thought that I would be here again because I needed to win on the Ladies European Tour to qualify into this event. It has been awesome to get back here.

“I had a great time this week, I just played my game and I really enjoyed every moment.

“This week I hit the ball really well but the final round was a bit of a struggle with my putter but I had a really good time here.

“When I play in professional events, I get real experience and I adapt that to every tournament that I play. I just keep wanting to improve my game.”
