Patty Tavatanakit recently won the Rolex Annika Major Award for an outstanding player in five majors during the 2021 LPGA Tour season.

In this title race, Tavatanakit finished first with 80 points, two more points than the runner-up – Nelly Korda is leading the women’s golf world (Rolex Rankings). To be counted, players must finish in the top 10 majors. But to be eligible for the prize, they need to win at least one of the five in the prestigious prize pool.

The 2021 women’s major calendar includes ANA Inspiration, US Open, PGA and Evian Championship, Women’s Open, respectively. This season, Tavatanakit has just launched the LPGA Tour, leaving only the Evian Championship. She won ANA Inspiration, winning the T26 US Open, T5 PGA Championship and T7 Women’s Open.
