Thailand’s Chanettee Wannasaen fired a stunning 9-under 63 to win the Portland Classic in Portland, Ore on Sunday, 4 September 2023.

Wannasaen turned in a bogey-free round at that included seven birdies and one eagle. The 19-year-old rookie finished at 26-under 262 for the tournament, securing her first victory on the LPGA Tour while also becoming just the third Monday qualifier to win a title.

Speaking in her winner’s interview, Wannasaen said: “I’m speechless.

“I really worked hard for this trophy. This is a really beautiful course, and it’s great because I can make a lot of birdies.”
