Whilst the individual title of the Aramco Team Series Presented by PIF is still up for grabs in Tampa, the team element of the tournament has been wrapped up.


The tournament concluded with a captivating team showdown, as France’s Pauline Roussin-Bouchard guided her team to victory with a stellar score of 68, securing the team title for the second consecutive year following their 2023 triumph in Florida.


The decisive moment came on the 18th hole, where amateur LuJain Omar Khalil, representing Saudi Arabia, sank a nerve-wracking putt to seal the deal for Team Roussin-Bouchard. Completing the winning team were Celine Herbin and Meghan MacLaren,


Speaking after capturing the team title, Roussin-Bouchard said: "I am extremely proud. It's been a blast, honestly. There was an amazing atmosphere. Everyone was cheering on one another, and it was just a very good balance in the team.



"We had each other's back no matter what. We had some tough times especially with the wind, but it didn't get a hold of us. Honestly, I couldn't be proud of the golfers, the way they handled everything.


"It was all about those last two holes; they were very stressful. It’s a team effort and LJ [LuJain] did well.


"She got very, very stressed out on that last putt, she worried she was going to lose it, but we're proud of her, a real credit to the team."


The Aramco Team Series Presented by PIF – Tampa concludes today with professionals battling it out for the first of five titles and a share of the $500,000 prize pool.
