Roussin had her mother caddy for her first win and boyfriend in role for her second Aramco Team Series win – Singapore (LET)

French rising star Pauline Roussin’s ruse of choosing a loved one to caddy her paid off again as she won the singles title at the Aramco Team Series – Singapore.

Roussin made eight birdies in a bogey-free final round of 64 to finish 15-under Saturday at Laguna National Golf Resort Club and defeat big winners Danielle Kang and Lydia Ko.

The 22-year-old brought her boyfriend with her for the $1 million tournament, her second title since turning pro and joining the Ladies European Tour in 2021.

Women’s golf, prize money and the fight for equal pay: is the sport going in the right direction?

It was reminiscent of her approach to her first win, the Didriksons Skatfo Open, where Roussin’s mother was her caddie.

“My mother was on the bag for the first time; This week was my friend. I think it says a lot about the mindset that I want to keep on the course,” she said.

“It’s about having fun and being myself and doing things in a good mood, not letting the game affect me. It won’t always be like that, I know that, but that was the mindset.

“Now after a year and a half as a pro I’ve realized where I can be when I’m at my best and it feels good that it’s ending in a win.”

Roussin started the final round with a triple lead and made her first birdie by the seventh hole, but played flawless golf from there.

  These are the types of decisions that criminals destroy

She made consecutive birdies from holes 9 to 12 and then again from 14 to 16 to finish four ahead of runner-up Kang, while world No. 1 Ko was another shot behind in third.

“Honestly, I just surfed the wave that just happened,” Roussin added.

“We kept it very relaxed with my caddy, my boyfriend, and we just talked about TV shows and what to watch and what not to watch. It kept me in a really good position throughout the lap.”

LET Order of Merit winner Linn Grant finished fourth in the first of five Aramco Team Series events at the European circuit this season with fellow Swede Elin Arvidsson.

The day before, the Austrian Christine Wolf’s quartet with Casandra Alexander, Eleanor Givens and amateur Katsuka Blalock had won the team competition in Singapore.

Alexander rolled in the winning putt on the 18th hole to put Team Wolf to 29 under par, one stroke behind Team Roussin.

Wolf said, “We all knew we needed a birdie on the last few holes and thank goodness the girls stuck it out. They played very well every two days and I couldn’t be prouder.”

The Aramco Team Series next kicks off in Florida in May before heading to London in July, Hong Kong in October and Riyadh in November for the finals.
