English rookie Charlotte Thomas finished tied for sixth on 19 under par in her first LPGA event in the United States, the Founders Cup in Arizona.

The 26-year-old carded seven birdies and one bogey in a six-under 66 on the final day in Phoenix.

South Korea’s Jin Young Ko hit a bogey-free final round to win the tournament by one shot.

“Very happy to get a top 10 in my first LPGA event stateside. Thank you for all the messages of support,” Thomas said
