CASTREN CAPTURES FIRST SYMETRA TOUR WIN
A final round 2-under 71 proved to be the winning formula for Matilda Castren (Helsinki, Finland) as she secured her first professional victory at Mission Inn Resort and Club. She finished 12 under overall.
“It’s definitely a confidence boost to have a win. I mean it just feels great. I feel like my game is in a good spot and I just kind of want to keep playing so I’m glad there’s more tournaments coming up,” said Castren, who is competing next week at the LPGA Drive On Championship. “It’s been a tough year for a lot of people, and I think I can speak for all the players that we really appreciated that we can have a tournament come together like this one on such short notice. The course is amazing, so it really worked out great for us and we really appreciate IOA and Mission Inn’s support.”
