Celine Boutier started her 2023 with a bang. The French golfer could not win a single title in the last two years on the LPGA Tour. She first won the Drive on Championship in March. She also clenched her first major at the Evian Championship. 

Celine also won the Women’s Scottish Open in August by defeating Kim Hyo Joo in LET. Additionally, the 29-year-old carved her name as the Maybank Champion 2023 in Malaysia. The French golfer sits comfortably at 5 in the Rolex Ranking and 1st in the Race to CME Globe. This year Boutier earned $2,738,390 from her various participation on the LPGA Tour and LET.

Meanwhile, Alison Lee’s 2023 season was not as amusing as Boutier’s. Alison started her 2023 with T5 in the Aramco Team Series and last month was solo second at the BMW Ladies Championship in Korea. Alison has won twice on the LET yet does not have a single win on the LPGA Tour. Yesterday, Alison won the Aramco Team Series in Riyadh and added the second win to her name.

Moreover, in 2023, Lee has had only three top-10 finishes without any victories on the LPGA Tour. This year Alison earned $835,715, way behind her French counterpart, Boutier. So if you ask us, after all the statistics and numbers, this year has been most successful for *drumrolls* Celine Boutier as she carded 5 wins and a bigger bag. However, Lee fans should not be sad as she broke records with her performance in Riyadh.

She also broke the LET record of 54-hole scoring as she had 29 under 187. Before the final, Alison finished the two rounds with 22 under 122 and equaled the record of the lowest found in LET history. The golfer was happy with her performance, as she said, “It’s surreal to think I played that well. I feel like for three days I played really confident golf.”
