Onnarin Sattayabanphot Wins 2013 Hoken no Madoguchi Ladies

Onnarin Sattayabanphot, 2013 Hoken no Magoduchi winner

We have seen the Korean and Japanese influx of golfers inject a fresh dose of diversity and talent to women’s golf worldwide. But while LPGA winner Stacy Prammanasudh is half-Thai, there has been a lack of winners actually representing Thailand on the four major tours. Until now. Earlier this year, young Thai phenom Ariya Jutanugarn won the 2013 Lalla Meryem Cup on the Ladies European Tour. Although not a full, official event, last year Pornanong Phatlum won the 2012 HSBC LPGA Brasil Cup. We can now add Onnarin Sattayabanphot to the growing list of strong Thai players, notching her first JLPGA victory at the 2013 Hoken no Madoguchi Ladies Cup. She was the overnight leader at 6-under. After a couple of front side birdies, Onnarin almost gave it away coming home with 2 closing bogeys on 16 and 18. It would prove good enough as the rainy conditions washed away low scores and left most of the players chasing her also settling for even par rounds. I am very pleased to see the emergence of Thai players starting to raise trophies on the major women’s golf tours. I wished so much that Virada Nirapathpongporn would have done so. It wasn’t to be with Oui on the LPGA, but with the Jutanugarn sisters, especially Ariya, I don’t think the final hurdle of winning a full LPGA event will be too long in being overcome.
