Patty Tavatanakit and Atthaya Thitikul are holding the top two spots after 36 holes with a chance to bring local golf to win the LPGA Tour event in Thailand for the first time.

The history of the country in the Golden Temple since 2006 has not yet recorded the domestic champion crowned. But on May 7, the ability to create a breakthrough victory was raised after two rounds of par72, when Tavatanakit dominated the top of the table at -16, and Thitikul was second (score -13). This is their result after two consecutive days in high form.

In the opening match, both were on T1 with 64 sticks, only Thitikul scored two eagles. The next day, Tavatanakit also had 64 strokes with six birdies, one eagle on the scoreboard without bogey, and Thitikul 67 strokes, of which four birds, an eagle and a bogey.

This stage, Tavanakit reached 286 yards in the two holes selected by the LPGA Tour to record the average kicking distance, hit six of the 14 fairways, hit the standard GIR (GIR) 15 holes and used 27 putt. Compared to his compatriot, Thitikul was six yards shorter, but hit twice as many fairways, similar GIRs and more than two putts.

With the second match finished, the tournament recognized five players who were five strokes away from Tavatanakit, including Thitikul and Lydia Ko. Former world number one from New Zealand ranked T4 with -11.

Tavatanakit was born in 1999, was on the LPGA Tour in 2020 and is still a rookie this season by Covid-19. Over a month ago, she won major ANA Inspiration.

In 50 years of history, Tavatanakit is the second rookie to win the championship. The first similar case is Juli Inkster in 1984.

With the victory of Tavatanakit, the professional golf village in the world, recognized two Thai golfers with the major championship. Ariya Jutanugarn fired her first cannon at the 2016 Women’s Open.

And Thitikul is 18 years old, on top golf for more than a year. When he was an amateur, this golfer played the SEA Games in two consecutive terms, including the individual championship in Malaysia 2017 and the bronze medal for the team content in the Philippines 2019.

In the same year that won the SEA Games gold, Thitikul was invited to the Ladies European Tour stage. On the closing day of the tournament – July 9, 2017, she took the coronation podium, becoming the youngest champion at a professional golf tournament. At that time, Thitikul was only 14 years old and four months and 19 days old.
