Averaging 326 yards off the tee, Patty Tavatanakit distances self from ANA field

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – When 25-year-old Jack Nicklaus won the 1965 Masters Tournament, he finished nine strokes clear of the field and set a new 72-hole scoring record. Afterwards, Bobby Jones, the tournament’s co-founder, marveled at the way the Golden Bear dominated Augusta National Golf Club.

"He plays a game with which I am not familiar,'' Jones famously said about Nicklaus.

The same could be said about Patty Tavatanakit’s performance this week at Mission Hills Golf Club.

 

The 21-year-old from Thailand has led the way since Day 1 at the ANA Inspiration, using her distance to overwhelm the golf course. The LPGA Tour rookie ranks ninth on Tour in driving distance, and this week, has averaged 326 yards off the tee. Throughout Saturday’s round, Golf Channel’s Judy Rankin marveled at the places Tavatanakit placed the golf ball. Tavatanakit is playing the course in a way that Rankin, the winner of the 1976 ANA Inspiration, has never seen before.

LPGA 투어 신인 선수로 드라이버 비거리에서 9위에 올랐고, 이번 주는 티에서 평균 326야드를 쳤다. 골프 채널의 토요일 라운드에서 주디 랭킨은 타바타나키트이 티샷한 골프공이 떨어진 위치를 놓고 경탄했다. 

 

타바타나키트는 1976년 ANA 인스퍼레이션 우승자 랭킨이 본 적이 없는 놀라운 모습으로 코스를 소화 중이다.
