At just 23 years of age, is it too early to say that Patty Tavatanakit is having a career resurgence?
As one of the most highly touted juniors in recent memory, Tavatanakit got out to a scorching hot start to her professional career in 2019. Winning three times in just eight starts on the now-Epson Tour, Tavatanakit ran away with Rookie of the Year honors and jumped up to the LPGA in 2020.
After a COVID-19-hindered rookie season, the Thai broke through for her first LPGA win in 2021.
Tavatanakit joined a shortlist of golfers whose first win on tour was a major championship, winning the ANA Inspiration by five strokes over Lydia Ko.
In her eight major starts since that win, Tavatanakit locked down three top-10 finishes but rode a cold streak of four straight missed cuts heading into the 2023 major season.
After briefly being in contention at the Chevron, it will be interesting to see how Tavatanakit continues her search for her second major title.
