BRONTE LAW KNOWS WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN AT WILLIAMSBURG
In 2019, Bronte Law won her first LPGA Tour event after posting a 4-under par 67 on Sunday, May 26, to finish at 17-under overall. It was a moment she’ll never forget.
Despite having to wait an extra year to defend her title (since the 2020 tournament was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic), Law is ready to reign again on the River Course at Kingsmill Resort.
“It certainly was absolutely incredible when I got that win and elevated my career in such a big way,” said Law. “It's something I'm hoping to build off. It is strange thinking back to then because obviously each week you turn up to a golf tournament with the hopes of winning, but ultimately have to go out there and do the job.
“Although it is great to be back and have so many fond memories, it is really important not to dwell on those and obviously, go out there and make sure that I give myself the best opportunity this week of defending that title.”
As tough as the competition was when Law stepped into the winner’s circle, the field looks to be equally, if not more, impressive especially with recent LPGA Tour winner Ariya Jutanugarn looking for her third Pure Silk Championship victory after titles in 2016 and 2018. When it comes to who is on the list, though, Law said she is fine.
“We have such a strong group of golfers that play out on the LPGA and there is incredible depth out here now, and obviously to win any LPGA event is a great feat, but certainly in great company like that, it does make it even more impressive to look back on,” Law said. “I think that winning an LPGA event, it's easy to look at other things that are involved but ultimately, winning is winning. I wouldn't ever want someone else to feel like they won because there was a weak field. You still have to go out and win.”
