Back-to-back-to-back? Celine Boutier knows the odds are stacked against her

Celine Boutier has won back-to-back events, can she make it three at Walton Heath?

 

Winning back-to-back is tough enough, but can Celine Boutier make it back-to-back-to-back wins at the AIG Women’s Open?

She claimed a maiden major title at the Evian Championship, becoming the first Frenchwoman to win on home soil, and then immediately followed up at the Women’s Scottish Open.

Now she’s on the hunt for her third win a row, and her second major title in almost as many weeks, at Walton Heath. What are the chances of her topping the podium yet again?

“I know the odds,” Boutier said.

“To be fair, like even winning two in a row is already pretty low, so I know three is like – it would be unbelievable if it happens, but I’m just not going to put a lot of pressure on myself about that.

“I’m honestly trying to put some good rounds together and see at the end.

“I feel like it’s definitely a little bit tiring because it’s now been three weeks on the road. So it’s definitely starting to settle in that, you know, it’s a little bit — I mean, yeah, it’s not easy to, like, stay focused and motivated.

“But at the same time, it’s also the last major of the year, so I’m just trying to focus on that and trying to finish strong.”

Boutier became just the third Frenchwoman to win a major at Evian – following in the footsteps of Catherine Lacoste and Patricia Meunier-Lebouc.

“Yeah, it was always something I always dream of doing in my career,” she added.

“I feel like winning a major at home is something you definitely want to do, and to be able to do it two weeks ago with the crowds and with my family and some of my family and friends there was definitely something that I probably will never forget.”

Can Celine Boutier do the unthinkable to win again this week? Let us know with a Tweet!

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
