The 2022 Aramco Team Series came to a thrilling conclusion after a play-off in both the individual and team events. 16-year-old Golf Saudi ambassador, Chiara Noja, took on British stalwart, Charley Hull, in a play-off in the individual event. Noja triumphed on the second play-off hole after making birdie, while Hull could only make par. The team event was equally as exciting as Team Nicole Garcia won in a play-off after Casandra Alexander holed a birdie on the first extra hole to defeat Team Christine Wolf, led by their captain. The teams had finished level on 29 under after the first two rounds, and Garcia went on to win her second team event of the 2022 edition of golf's global series.
