“It’s amazing to be the first ever Aramco Power Up recipient, which came as a total surprise! I never expected to get an opportunity to play with the best players on the LET at this stage of my career,” Sisutham said. “It’s been nerve racking but it’s giving me valuable experiences for my career and following in the footsteps of my hero Lydia Ko.”

Aramco’s support of Ladies European Tour events has seen them become the biggest backer of women’s golf – using it’s platform to promote global female empowerment.

Talal Al Merri, General Manager of Public Affairs at Aramco, said: “We are thrilled to support Pimpsia as she chases her dream of competing as a professional golfer. To be able to offer her this illustrates our efforts to support women’s golf — globally and at every level. The goal of each Aramco Team Series event is to elevate women’s golf across the board and the opportunities we can create, on and off the course, that we believe will further progress the women’s game.”

The Aramco Team Series — Bangkok kicks off 2022’s run of tournaments this week at the Thai Country Club, before the ATS heads to London (June 16-18), Sotogrande (August 18-20), New York (October 13-15) and finally Jeddah on November 9-11.
