The English star got in trouble for breaching regulations whilst celebrating her first LPGA win.

Mel Reid arrived at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship feeling ready to focus on securing her first major title.

But a few days before she was fined by the LPGA for breaching the Tour’s COVID-19 protocols.

Following her win at the ShopRite LPGA Classic on Sunday October 4, the star admitted that she “partied quite hard” with caddie Ryan "Des" Desveaux.

The LPGA then fined her for breaking their COVID-19 policies during what sounds to have been quite a raucous celebration.

Speaking to reporters at the start of this week’s major she said:

"I did celebrate on Sunday and got in a bit of trouble. It wouldn't have been me if I didn't get in trouble!"

“I mean, I obviously took it a little bit easier than I probably would have done normally. Dez did not. Dez was not in good shape for a couple days.”

Mel wouldn’t say which specific part of the celebration landed her in hot water, but she did admit that she was “just a bit naughty”.

However, the spot of bother didn’t take away from the joy of getting her big win.

“No matter what I do in my career now, I'm an LPGA winner. It's something that we've put in so many hours and sacrificed so much to even have a moment like that. So, to actually pull through and do it is to me just a dream.

“I've obviously done my journey slightly differently than everybody else. I feel like I'm an overnight success for the last 15 years, so to finally get it done was a relief.”

She has her eyes on the trophy this weekend too, despite the fact that the track at Aronimink, Pennsylvania, is known for being notoriously difficult.

Reflecting on how she’ll continue to tackle it over the next few days she said: "It's just one of the hardest golf courses I've ever played, but I'm looking forward to the challenge, and hopefully I can stay fresh enough to be mentally in the right place come Sunday.”
