Thitikul Wins Walmart NW Arkansas Championship


Atthaya Thitikul defeated Danielle Kang on the second playoff hole to win the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship.  Thitikul followed up her Saturday round of 10-under par with a 3-under 68 to get into playoff with Kang, who shot a final round 64, including a chip-in eagle on the final hole to briefly take the lead.

Thitikul then calmly made a birdie putt on the par-3 17th to get back into a tie for the lead. She had chances to win in regulation and the first playoff hole, before clinching the win with a birdie on the second playoff hole.

Natalia Kaniuk set the pace this week in the LPGA Golf Pool with 48 points
