Cheenglab Clinches Maiden LET Title At Big Green Egg Open

A thrilling final day at the Big Green Egg Open ended with Trichat Cheenglab landing her maiden Ladies European Tour (LET) title as the Thai rookie fired a 67 (-5) to win by one shot in the Netherlands.

With seven players tied at the top prior to play a Sunday showdown beckoned at Hilversumsche, and how the billing delivered as Cheenglab posted six birdies including a wonderful four on the par-5 18th to pip Lydia Hall and Nicole Broch Estrup to glory on 12-under par.

“I’m very happy,” the 28-year-old said. “I didn’t think my first victory would come this fast! Today I just did what I had to do. I made a lot of birdies.”

Playing in the final group alongside Welsh duo Chloe Williams and Hall, Cheenglab birdied her opening hole at the par-5 as the latter eagled to break from the pack and take the solo lead.

With Estrup making birdies for fun further up the course – the Dane made five in her first seven holes – Cheenglab posted red numbers on the 3rd, 7th, and 8th to go out in 32 – one shot less than Hall who looked the player to beat in Hilversum.
