Jasmine Suwannapura finally had her career breakthrough at the LPGA Classic 2018 marathon when she won a playoff against Brittany Lincicome and won her first LPGA Tour title. It only makes sense that the 28-year-old Thai has very fond memories of Highland Meadows Golf Club and is thrilled to see faces off the ropes again after playing on an empty course in 2020.
“I saw a lot of volunteers volunteering for this week and saying, ‘Hello Jasmine, how’s it going,'” she said. “It’s great to see people you know come back a few years ago and help us this week. Yes, sure to support this week. “
Suwannapura goes into the weekend in 2021 with a total of -7, tied on 10th place and five strokes behind the leadership of Nasa Hataoka. She finished 18th on Round 67 on Friday with a 20-foot birdie and capped her best lap at Highland Meadows since finishing her 2018 win with two 65s.
“My caddy Justin says you did a lot of the long birdie putts so you will do this again. I said we’ll see, ”said Suwannapura. “I just rolled this up. It feels great.”
