Team Hillier triumphed at the Aramco Team Series -- Bangkok as they recorded a final round of 15-under-par to secure a three-stroke victory at Thai Country Club.

After starting the day in front, Whitney Hillier, Chonlada Chayanun, Krista Bakker and amateur Pattanan Amatanon backed up their excellent first with another great round to seal victory on 31 under.

It was a first LET title for Hillier and Chonlada, while it is back-to-back victories in the Team event for Bakker who was a part of Team Pedersen in Jeddah last November.

Captain Hillier said: "I'm so proud of my team. Even from the start of yesterday morning we just had a good vibe. Everything just flowed and obviously we played great golf, but we had a lot of the fun, so that was the most important thing too."

It was a fantastic day for Chonlada in the individual competition as she carded a five-under 67 to help her team and climb up the Individual leaderboard.

"I'm just happy," she said. "I never thought about winning and we did it as a team, so I'm really happy. I'm so proud of my team."

Team Simmermacher led by Magdalena Simmermacher alongside Charlotte Liautier, Isabella Deilert and amateur Sirapob Yapala finished in second place on 28 under.

Team Tavatanakit was third with a total of 26 under and one shot further back in a tie for fourth place were Team Moriya Jutanugarn and Team Lampert.

In the individual competition, Patty Tavatanakit signed for a round of a three-under 69 to be nine under after 36 holes.

England's Felicity Johnson and Belgium's Manon De Roey sit two shots off the lead on seven under having fired rounds of 68 and 67, respectively.

Two-time major winner Ariya Jutanugarn was on six under alongside Sweden's Johanna Gustavsson with five players in a tie for sixth place on five under including Scotland's Catriona Matthew.
