Lilia Vu wins the AIG Women’s Open 2023

The tournament itself bore witness to an epic battle between world-class golfers competing for victory. In this edition, the win was claimed by an up-and-coming star whose talent and grit shone through. The champion of the tournament was the Hawaiian player Lilia Vu, who is just 25 years old.

This talented youngster, ranked as the sixth best player in the world, demonstrated her skill with an impressive final round. Vu completed the final round 5 below 67 to win by six strokes and 14 below par. She hit an early birdie at hole 2, a par-4, continuing the round with six consecutive on-par holes and a further birdie at hole 9, par-3. In the final 9 holes, Vu started to set herself apart from the other players with two more birdies at holes 10 and 12. Her only bogey was at hole 11. With each strike of the club, she demonstrated her dominance of the course, both with her birdies and on-pars. For Vu, this victory represents a huge step towards consolidating herself as one of the top players in the world.

Charley Hull, who started the day tied with Vu at the top of the leaderboard, ended up in second place after a 73-strike round (+1). Jiyai Shin (70) came in third and Hyo Joo Kim (74) and Amy Yang (70) ended in joint fourth place with 6 below par.

The AIG Women's Open 2023 was not only a golf tournament, but also a celebration of golf’s tenacity and power to bring people from all over the world together. As the players wrote a new chapter in the history of women’s golf, they also added their names to the list of golf’s sporting legends.
