A. Jutanugarn wins first major at Women's British

MILTON KEYNES, England – Ariya Jutanugarn won the Women's British Open on Sunday at Woburn for her first major championship and fourth LPGA Tour victory of the year.

The 20-year-old Jutanugarn closed with an even-par 72 for a three-stroke victory over American Mo Martin and South Korea's Mirim Lee. Jutanugarn became the first major winner from Thailand.

''I think it's really important for me and for Thai golf, also,'' Jutanugarn said. ''Like my goal, I really want to win major and I did. I'm really proud of my achievement because I accomplished my goal this year.''

She will be one of the favorites at the Rio Olympics.

''I'm really looking forward to it,'' Jutanugarn said. ''I can't wait. I'm really excited about that.''

She finished at 16-under 272 on the Marquess Course, the hilly, forest layout that is a big change from the usual seaside layouts in the tournament rotation.
