About The Donald Ross Classic at French Lick Resort
Less than two months after turning pro, Patty Tavatanakit has a Symetra Tour title under her belt. Tavatanakit sizzled with a 7-under-par 64 in the final round to overtake 36-hole leader Ssu-Chia Cheng for a three-stroke victory in the third annual Donald Ross Classic.
Tavatanakit finished 13 under par and also notched the best winning mark in the tournament’s three-year history. Cheng was the runner-up at 10-under, Perrine Delacour (-9) finished third, and four golfers shared fourth place at 8-under: Esther Lee, Min Seo Kwak, Michelle Piyapattra and Yujeong Son.
In its 4th year at the French Lick Resort, this LPGA Symetra Tour event shows off the best and brightest young female golfers on the tour. These golfers are working to earn their tour cards and provide a very exciting, up close, and personal look at women's golf.
This was the second straight year a former UCLA golfer seized the Donald Ross Classic title, following Stephanie Kono’s victory in 2018. Tavatanakit, a native of Thailand and a Thousand Oaks, Calif., resident, earned a winner’s share of 33,750 in just her third career Symetra Tour start. She earned first-team All-American honors in both seasons at UCLA before opting to turn pro after her sophomore year.
