Tawatanakit, who at 22 is a major champion (2021 Chevron Championship), hasn’t played weekend golf at the LPGA since late April, when she finished T-26 at the Palos Verdes Championship.

“I was going through a tough period but I kept telling myself to keep going and when your golf isn’t going well and your love life isn’t going well, it just adds up emotionally,” Tawatanakit said. “But being able to do it today really helped with everything, and it’s like the calm after the storm, and just seeing it is very touching.”

Tawatanakit was in 19th placeth in the world after briefly entering the top 10 in 2021.

Her recent struggle seemed to come out of nowhere.

Before her four straight misses led to the Scottish tournament, the former UCLA star had 24 straight cuts, 11 of which were in the top 10 during that period.

What kept her going in the midst of a three-month streak of slips?

“I just kept believing in myself and that was important because I feel like I doubt what I’m doing a lot of times just because of the result,” Tawatanakit said. “But at the end of the day, you continue to believe in what you’re doing, and today it really showed.”
