Vu earned her seventh LPGA Hall of Fame point this season when she locked up the Rolex Player of the Year Award. A four-time winner this season, including two majors, Vu closed the season with a 65 at the CME to finish solo fourth.
“I think it’s been unreal for (Player of the Year) to happen,” said Vu. “I think last year I was telling (caddie) Cole (Pensanti) on the last hole, I remember after the last round … I just broke down in tears. I was just really hard on myself. I was definitely hard on myself this year, too, but much nicer.
“Came in with no expectations and tried to win every tournament that I played in. Just kept my goals really small, and I think that really helped me achieve Player of the Year.”
Celine Boutier, another four-time winner this season, finished second in the points race, 34 points behind Vu.
