Go Lopes! Grand Canyon University’s Womens Golf Team is celebrating the success of one of their former teammates!
Charlotte (Chorphaka) Jaengkit graduated from the university in 2015, but her alma matter is excited about her post-graduation professional success!
On Sunday, she won the Decatur-Forsyth Classic in Illinois, a thrilling moment for her that resulted in her first Symetra Tour title.
The native of Bangkok, Thailand beat Tiffany Chan by a stroke to finish off her sixth career tour event. As a result of her win, she jumped from 131st to 16th on the money list, with $19,500 in earnings from this tournament alone. If she keeps progressing, she will have a shot at earning an LPGA Tour card.
She closed with a 2-under 70 for a 12-under 204 total at Decatur-Forsyth.
During her time at GCU, Charlotte led the Lopes to a fifth-place finish at the Western Athletic Conference Women’s Golf Championships during their first season as a Division I team. She finished in the top-10 in 12 out of 14 tournaments.
