Krauter found herself down three strokes through just four holes in the 18-hole championship match against Fuller.
However, she won six of the next eight holes and had built a three-shot lead with six holes to play. The German golfer pressed forward despite Fuller closing the gap to just one as they took to the 18th hole.
Krauter and Fuller matched pars, and her par putt became the top putt of her career, by far, as it won her the championship in dramatic fashion.
With her win, Krauter now is guaranteed a spot at the Women’s Open next year at the famous Carnoustie. She’ll likely receive an invite to the U.S. Women’s Open, the Evian Championship as well as the Augusta National Women’s Amateur.
Her list of Stanford accolades is also nothing short of amazing, as she adds the prestigious top individual award to her already growing list of historic feats.
