Arricau voted Players' Player of the Year
Stephanie Arricau of France was awarded the 2004 Players' Player of the Year by her fellow Robe di Kappa Ladies European Tourists after her best season in four years as a professional.
The 31-year-old from Orthez snared her maiden victory at the Spanish Open this season and went on to win her national title with a gutsy display in the final round to deny Elisabeth Esterl.
Arricau also racked up four more top ten finishes to close the season at third in the order of merit behind Trish Johnson and Laura Davies.
"At the beginning of the year my goal was to play the game with more focus and concentration and to be more confident, not be afraid and to be patient and once I won in Spain, my confidence was very high," said Arricau.
"I didn't want to be remembered as a player who just won one tournament so I wanted to win again very soon as once was not enough for me! But if you said that I would have a three week spell like that, I would never have believed you.
"I'm very happy about the award, especially form all of my fellow players and I have always tried to do my best and give everyone some of my time if I could and have good relationships with them and I hope that this will inspire some more of the young French player to do well and work hard at their game."
The award is decided by the members of the Ladies European Tour to vote for the member they believe has contributed the most to the season on the Tour.
