Did Ariya 2-peat?

Can a player win a tournament, fly home to meet the Prime Minister of Thailand and to sign a get well card for the King then head back to the US to prepare for the Kingsmill Championship and win it? If we are talking about Ariya Jutanugarn then the answer is a loud “YES”.

Ariya came from behind on third round to take the lead. Other promising players like Stacy Lewis, In Gee Chun and So Yeon Ryu were one stroke behind and all of them except In Gee was the outright leader.

Judy Rankin on the Golf Channel liked the way Ariya swings her club. We see her struggle on the tee box with her M1 driver, often pulling it left like she did yesterday. But as a strong player, she managed to bat it out and was on the side of the green in two. She saved par and moved on like nothing had happened. Talk about confidence.

It is going to be a huge celebration for the Jutanugarn’s family tonight. Hope she invites all her friends and fans but I know I am dreaming. Congratulations again Ariya!
