Annanarukan wins LPGA Tour ‘Match Queen’…Huroue runner-up for second straight year

Annanarukarn defeated Ayaka Furue (Japan) by three shots in the final round of the LPGA Tour’s Bank of Hope Match Play ($1.5 million purse) at Shadow Creek Golf Club (Par 72) in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, on Monday morning. Ananarukarn now has two career victories in two years after winning her first LPGA Tour title at the Handa World Invitational in 2021. It is the first win of the year for a Thai player.

Anannarukarn hasn’t had a top-10 finish this year, dropping to 97th in the world rankings.
