An emotional win for, Thailand native, Ariya Jutanugarn on this 2016 Mother’s Day as her mom looked on as she got up and down on the 18th for the win.
"Thank you for my mom for being with me all the time to support me and happy Mother's Day," said Jutanugarn.
Jutanugarn held a three-stroke lead entering the final round of the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic and had to fight off nerves to become a Rolex First-Time Winner. She had an up and down day carding four bogeys and four birdies to finish the day even par and one stroke ahead of fellow competitors Morgan Pressel, Stacy Lewis and Amy Yang to become the first player from Thailand to win on the LPGA Tour.
She has had three top-10’s this season before stepping into the winner’s circle.
“So tough, I feel the three holes I can’t control anything," said Jutangarn. "My legs were shaking, my hands were shaking.”
