At the age of just 19, there are surely many more to come; not least because the nature of her performance – including going head-to-head in a tense play-off against the vastly experienced Nanna Koerstz Madsen – has set her up as one of the most talented emerging players on the circuit.

In pulling a rookie surprise on an experienced opponent – one that left Madsen herself saying that she “just didn’t see her coming until it was too late” – Thitikul demonstrates a rock-solid performance mindset. As she told RSNG, this approach requires not thinking about golf at all for 50% of the round!

 “Maybe in very quiet moments when I am by myself, yes, but when I step out onto the course, it is not as if I change the way I swing the club, or approach a putt, just because I am a tournament winner.

“In that split second moment of how I take a shot, I am playing back through a recording that I have done hundreds of thousands of times, and that will never change, no matter what success I have on the course.”

“Every shot, every hole, every round you lose is another chance to learn. It is all a building experience.”
