Coming in fresh after placing second at last week’s AIG Women’s Open, Jasmine Suwannapura reveals her secret to playing golf well, trusting her feel. She is one of the Thai ladies taking part in 14th Walmart NW Arkansas Championship due this week at the Pinnacle Country Club this week.

 

 “What's it called, feel? I didn’t grow up looking at my own swing at all,” Jasmine of Thidapa  said. “I barely have any videos of myself swinging. I don't really know how to fix my swing with watching my video. I just do what I think I know, and golf I feel like if you own your swing, if you know your swing, you can tell like which part that you do wrong and fix it fast if you really own your swing.”

In the past couple of weeks, the method has seemed to work for the two-time LPGA Tour winner who, surprisingly, has never had a coach. The LPGA’s very own Bubba Watson.

 “To be honest, the only coach I have is my dad and me. I never had a coach ever. I was supposed to have a coach, but sadly he passed away when I was 16. After that, just me and my dad who taught me how to play golf. Since I was 17-years-old until now, I’ve pretty much been learning and teaching myself out here. When I need to fix my swing, I do it by myself.”

Jasmine will tee off the first round on Friday off the 10th tee at 7:55 a.m. EDT alongside major champions Inbee Park and Lydia Ko.

Other Thais competing include Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn, Pornanong Phatlum who is playing her first event after the COVID-19 break.
