The 2021 of the ‘ladies’, in figures

The 2021 season on the Ladies European Tour was a non-stop from its start in South Africa to the final putt in Spain six months later. 226 Birdies


The 2021 season on the Ladies European Tour was a non-stop from its start in South Africa to the final putt in Spain six months later.

226 Birdies of Atthaya Thitikul

The 18-year-old Thai achieved this huge number of Birdies. Of the 60 rounds the Thai talent played in 18 events, she only finished above par five times, highlighting her consistency throughout 2021, helping her to two tournament victories.

8 Eagles by Atthaya Thitikul

Once again, the player currently ranked 20th in the Rolex Women’s World Rankings led the way when it came to the Eagles in 2021, with two shots taken astoundingly eight times last year.

80% Maja Stark greens

You’ll always have a chance to win if you’re on the greens, and that’s exactly what Maja Stark did so well in her impressive late cameo after turning pro in August.

91.75% Fairways Hit by María Hernández

The 35-year-old rarely found anything other than fairway in the 21 events she played last year, with 612 of her 667 starting shots avoiding the rough.

That precision was critical in helping Hernández to six top-20 finishes during the season, as well as best third place of the season at the Estrella Damm Ladies Open, which saw her finish 29th in the Carrera a la Costa del Sol.

17 years, 5 months and 3 days by Pia Babnik

The Slovenian was proclaimed the winner of the Jabra Ladies Open in June. Later the Aramco Team Seires – Jedahh was also secured.

40 Years, 3 Months, and 1 Day by Lee-Anne Pace

They say age is just a number, and Lee-Anne Pace proved it most daringly at the opening of the 2021 season, when the South African took the crown in her homeland at the Investec South African Women’s Open.

60 lowest round from Roussin-Bouchard

Everyone who watched the second day of the Didriksons Skaftö Open knew they were witnessing something special, with Pauline Roussin-Bouchard racing on the Swedish west coast.

The French teenager galloped through the streets in no time that day, needing just 60 shots from first to 18, to score a -9 and put her in control heading into the final day.

5 highest margin of victory for Lee and Ko

With so many closed LET finals in 2021, there have only been a handful of times we’ve had a runaway leader, but Alison Lee and Lydia Ko produced brilliant moments to claim resounding victories last year.

Lee arrived at the Aramco Team Series – Sotogrande event, where the American racked up consecutive rounds of 65 (-7) to give her a seven-shot lead heading into the final day, before staying calm with a round of 71. (-1) ) to win by five shots from Ashleigh Buhai.

It was a similar display of Ko’s brilliance at the Aramco Saudi Ladies International, with the New Zealander unflappable throughout the four days of the event at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club.

Ko was in Saudi inspired form, with the highlight of a third round score of 63 (-9), and despite Atthaya Thitikul’s best intentions to push, the two-time Major winner finished the job for a convincing victory.
