A flawless final round from Lilia Vu propelled the 25-year-old to her first career LPGA title on Sunday at the Honda LPGA Thailand. With a bogey-free 64 at Siam Country Club in Chonburi, Thailand, the three-year veteran overcame a six-shot deficit entering the final round to beat LPGA rookie and local favorite Natthakritta Vongtaveelap by one stroke. Vu finished with a 22-under 266.

"Yesterday my dad told me that just one good round and I could win. That's all I kept thinking about," said Vu, whose first tour victory came after three third-place finishes in 2022. "Basically today I just blacked out and tried to birdie every single hole I could."

Vu, a former UCLA All-American and U.S. Curtis Cup team member, had previously had seven top-10 finishes on the LPGA Tour in her 33 starts. She was also a two-time winner on the Epson Tour. The victory earned Vu the $255,000 first place prize money payout from the $1.7 million overall purse and pushes her past $1 million in career earnings in just 34 professional starts.

Here's the prize money payout for the entire field in Thailand.
