Atthaya Thitikul Earns First LET Win as a Pro

Atthaya Thitikul, also known by her nickname "Jeeno," is a Thai golf phenom who has been described as a "phenom" for what seems like a phenomenally long time. Playing as an amateur, she won the Ladies European Tour Thailand Championship way back in 2017 when she was only 14 years old.

In 2019, still an amateur, she repeated as champion in that tournament, winning by five strokes at age 16.

When the COVID pandemic hit in 2020, Thitikul had turned pro. But her pro career got off to a slow start because the pandemic kept her cooped up in Thailand. Jeeno earned her first win as a professional golfer in July of 2020 at the Singha-Sat Thai LPGA Championship on the Thai LPGA Tour.

And now, less than a year later, Thitikul has her first win on the Ladies European Tour when playing as a pro (her third LET win overall). On June 27, 2021, Thitikul won the Czech Ladies Open.

Atthaya carded scores of 68 and 68 in the first two rounds. In the final round she shot 65 to finish at 15-under 201 and win by one stroke over the runner-up Nuria Iturrioz.

And guess what: Jeeno is still only 18 years old.
