Immigration's daughter' Bhutier challenges a new record in 7 years since Jutanugarn
Boutier engraved his name as the first French winner at the Amundi Evian Championship, which ended on the 30th of last month. “I hope my win will bring more French golfers to the table,” she said. Like Korea's Se-ri Pak and Thailand's Jutanugarn sisters, they hoped that winning a major tournament would serve as a priming water for revitalizing golf in their country.
Before the joy of winning is over, I challenge myself to win another championship. Bootier won her solo with 13 under par 203 until the 3rd round of the LPGA Tour Freedie Group Scottish Women's Open (total prize money of 2 million dollars) held at Dun Donald Links (par 72, 6494 yards) in Ayrshire, Scotland on the 5th (Korean time) rose to the fore She beat Thailand's Patty Tawatanakit and Sweden's Maya Stark by 3 strokes to rise to the top of the leaderboard.
If Boutier wins this tournament, he will become the 14th player in history to win two weeks in a row after winning a major tournament. Eriya Jutanugarn, who won the 2016 British Women's Open and the Canadian Women's Open, is the last player to win immediately after winning a major tournament. It is remarkable that her parents are Thai, and Boutie, the daughter of French immigrants, shares her record with Thai golf hero Jutanugarn.
Boutier is also challenging to achieve her first three wins on the LPGA Tour this season. Three wins on the LPGA Tour have yet to come after Lydia Ko achieved last year. In addition, Ko Jin-young, who won the LPGA Tour for two consecutive weeks, won the 2021 Cognitive Founders Cup and the BMW Ladies Championship in a row, is the last record holder. It is the first time in 22 months since Boutier Ko Jin-young that he is trying to win for two weeks in a row.
“Thanks to last week’s win, I gained confidence. He expressed confidence, saying, “I will do my best with the same strategy as before and see the results for the final round.” Among Korean players, Kim Hyo-joo is tied for ninth with a 6-under-par 210 stroke, and Kim A-rim and Lee Mi-hyang are tied for 13th with a 5-under-par 211 stroke.
