Boutier Secures Back-To-Back Titles with Victory In Scotland

Celine Boutier won the 2023 FREED GROUP Women’s Scottish Open Presented by Trust Golf after shooting a final round of 70 (-2).

The Frenchwoman began the day with a three-shot lead and had a steady front nine with birdies on holes six and nine at Dundonald Links.

Boutier rolled in a birdie on 13 before making bogeys on 14 and 16, but she bounced back with a birdie on 17 which proved to be enough to seal a two-stroke victory in Scotland.  

“It’s completely crazy,” said Boutier. “I would have never imagined that I would be able to win not one, but two tournaments in a row. I’m just incredibly in shock. I don’t think I know what to say or what to think! I think it’s just completely out of control. I’m not sure what to think.

“There were definitely some tough shots out there, and I didn’t manage to play as well as the past three days, but I feel like that’s going to happen. It’s a long tournament, and I just tried to stay patient and stick to my game and stick to my game plan.

“I feel like both Hyo-Joo [Kim] and Maja [Stark] were playing well and, on this course, just like last year, anything can happen with a solid round. I tried to really stay patient and tried to hit some close, but it’s not always easy especially, on this course.
