Jeeno shot a sizzling 64 in the final round to come from behind and tie third-round leader Nanna Koerstz Madsen. Koerstz Madsen was going for her second consecutive win; she had won the LPGA's previous event in a playoff. Now, it was Thitikul's turn to challenge Koerstz Madsen in a playoff. After the two matched scores on the first playoff hole, Thitikul won the playoff, and the tournament, with a bogey on the second hole after Koerstz Madsen hit into water. Thitikul already has four wins on the Ladies European Tour, two of
