Korean storms to 8-shot lead

/ 01:40 AM March 17, 2017

Only a major disaster can prevent Korean Hwang Ye-nah from winning the ICTSI Champion Tour at Malarayat.

Hwang carded a three-under-par 69 Thursday to post an imposing eight-stroke lead over Thai Chatprapa Siriprakob heading into Friday’s final round.

Counting her opening 66, Hwang pooled a nine-under 135 to ward off the challenge of Siriprakob, who turned in a day-best 68 under scorching heat for a 143 total.
