Ng On Yee Clinches First Landywood British Open Title

Hong Kong’s Ng On Yee secured her first Landywood British Open title by defeating Mink Nutcharut 4-1 in the final.

The 33-year-old triumphed after an impressive day, which saw her overcome former World Champions Baipat Siripaporn and Reanne Evans, as well as three-time UK Champion Tessa Davidson on her way to the championship.

This victory marks On Yee’s third ranking title of the season, making her the top ranking points earner of the year. It also represents the 20th ranking title of her career, making her only the sixth player to achieve this milestone.

This season, four out of the eight ranking events have featured the top two ranked players in the final. Nutcharut, from Thailand, previously won the US Open and Belgian Open, while On Yee clinched the Albanian Open.

In the title match, after splitting the first two frames, On Yee won the next three frames to secure a comfortable victory, completing a hat-trick of titles after going without a trophy last season.

Despite the loss, world number one Nutcharut did enough during the tournament to retain her top ranking, ensuring a fresh two-year card on the World Snooker Tour starting in the 2024/25 season.
