Two Young Thais Share the Lead at LPGA Honda Thailand

Recommended Posts

Day one has been extraordinarily successful for Thai players at the LPGA Honda Thailand with Athhaya Thitikul and Patty Tavatanakit sharing the lead at -8 and Ariya Jutanugarn tied third on -7.


With a fairly damp and blustery course to start with, the ten Thais taking part had to contend with these difficult conditions, that then changed into very humid temperatures for their back nines.


18-year-old Thitikul who has already won twice on the Ladies European Tour here in Pattaya at Phoenix Gold, ended her round with an incredible eagle on the difficult 18th.


A few minutes later Tavatanakit, who last month won the ANA Inspiration in America,joined her at the top of the leader board after a solid round of 64.


Jutanugarn unfortunately boogied her last hole, otherwise Thailand would have had three players leading the tournament going into round two.


Thais Pajaree Anannarukan is at -4, plus PornanongPhatlum and Moriya Jutanugarnare on -2, with Nanna Madsen from Denmark at -7 and Lydia Ko from New Zealand on -6.


Tomorrow the play starts at 09.00hrs and the TV coverage begins around 08.30hs on the Golf Channel in English or on PPTV 36 in Thai.


The land of the smiles would love to have a Thai winner on Sunday.
