Won her first LPGA title at the age of 34 in October with a one stroke victory in the Mediheal Championship over Yuka Saso. The triumph has been long-awaited, and came at the 246th time of asking for Ewart Shadoff on the LPGA. The victory is all the more remarkable considering she has played in 49 major championships and on the LPGA Tour for a decade.
In 2017, closed with a dazzling eight-under 64 in the AIG Women’s Open at Kingsbarns, but had begun the day nine strokes behind In-Kyung Kim and the Korean’s 71 meant she held off Shadoff’s challenge. Nine years earlier represented Britain and Ireland in the Curtis Cup and England at the Espirito Santo World Amateur Team Championships. Graduated with a degree in psychology from the University of New Mexico, where the two times English stroke play champion twice earned all-American honours. After her first two top seven finishes in majors in 2013 was handed a Solheim Cup wild card, winning twice in the victory in Colorado, and she represented Europe again in 2017 and the 2019 win at Gleneagles.
