Celine Boutier picked up her first major title in July after cruising to victory in the Evian Championship in her native France.
The 29-year-old finished on 14-under-par, six shots clear of 2022 winner Brooke Henderson.
Boutier won the European amateur title aged 19 in 2012 and three years later added the Women's Amateur Championship at Portstewart. She had taken up a golf scholarship at Duke University in the United States by then, helping them to become NCAA champions in 2014 and having a 15-week spell as the number one-ranked player on the amateur world rankings.
She turned professional in 2016 and has since won four times on the LPGA Tour and four on the European circuit.
Boutier finished sixth in the AIG Women’s Open at Woburn in 2019 and T7 in 2022.
She made her Solheim Cup debut as a wildcard pick in 2019 and won all her four games in the one-point victory at Gleneagles.
