This was her seventh career title and her first since winning last year’s Evian Championship. In her seven starts this year she had finished tied for second in the HSBC Women’s World Championship and third in the DIO Implant LA Open.

“I just feel like I’ve kind of been trending. I’ve been hitting it really, really well this whole — I mean, this whole season, and I just felt like it was kind of around the corner. I kept knocking on the door, and here I am now.

“I was actually quite calm the whole day. My emotion was actually quite just very, very level, so it was just nice just to win. I think that’s why I celebrated.”
