What happened this week in women’s golf from around the world.


The Juatugarn sisters came through on the last day to win the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational by 3 strikes from the defending champions Jasmine Suwannapura and Cydney Clanton. Ariya had 8 birdies in the 4th round to help them to a final round -11!

Mo said after the win “I felt like out there it's about momentum and we had pretty good momentum at the start,It's just more like supporting each other and I had great support from my sister this week. No matter what, she probably hit a few trees out there, but she still made a lot of birdies for me, so I forgive her. We really enjoyed it.”


The LET headed to Finland for the Gant Ladies Open, where LPGA and Finish star Matilda Castren started favourite along with teenage sensation and LET order of merit leader Atthaya Thitikul.

It was 26 year old Matilda who came out on top at the end of 3 rounds winning on home soil by 3 shots from fellow Fin Ursula Wiksrrom and Tvesa Malik of India. After her win she said “ I am so happy about this! It was what I came here for, and it is unbelievable that I pulled it off”.
