BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — Fai Khamborn, 15 of Thailand, defeated Lydia Gumm one-up in the 36-hole championship match of the Women's Western Amateur on Saturday.
Khamborn captured the 2012 Women's Western Junior when she was 12, and now can add this prestigious event to her resume.
She finished sixth in stroke play qualifying, where Sierra Brooks earned her second medalist honor of the year, and mowed through notable collegiate players Allison Emrey of Wake Forest and Ashley Holder of Central Florida en route to the final match against Gumm, who is a senior at Florida State.
Khamborn got the week started off on a good note with a hole-in-one during stroke play's second round, all while her aunt caddied her to victory.
The tournament, in its 115th running, was held in 2015 at Nashville Golf & Athletic Club in Brentwood, Tennessee.
