Thailand's team has emerged as the winner of the international crown championship over the Australian team. The International Crown is a match-play tournament featuring teams of four players from eight countries split into two pools. The top two teams from each pool advanced to the semifinals, where the format was two singles matches and one alternate-shot match.

“I would say when I’m growing up, when I’m turning pro, I always want to inspire the kids back home, and right now I feel even better because not only me right now,” Ariya Jutanugarn said. "It was a total team effort" she concluded
Thitikul beat Stephanie Kyriacou 4 and 2 to improve to 5-0 on the week and earn the clinching point in the final. Patty Tavatanakit won over Hannah Green 4 and 3 in the other singles match.
The Jutanugarns won their match against Minjee Lee and Sarah Kemp 4 and 3 when Ariya Jutanugarn chipped the hole on the 15th green as sixth-seeded Thailand finished the week winning 11 of 12 matches.

Speaking about the future of Thai Golf, Tavatanakit said, “Us winning this event is huge for golf in Thailand.” “It is already growing, and I think this is going to inspire a lot of people, even more than what we feel inspired 10 years ago. I’m really excited to see the future of Thai golf.”
