Rosales shares 8th; Ikeda lands 12th
Jennifer Rosales scrambled to save a 72 and settled for joint eighth in the Thailand Open won by Thai Nontaya Srisawang at the Lakewood Country Club in Bangkok, Thailand, late Friday.
Two off Tanaporn Kongkiatkrai at tee-off, Rosales rattled off three birdies against a bogey in the first seven holes to be in the title hunt. But the two-time LPGA winner had three bogeys in a five-hole stretch from No. 10, needing to birdie the par-5 15th to salvage par for a 54-hole total of 213.
That was six shots behind Srisawang, who shot a record 65 and snatch the crown at 207.
Chihiro Ikeda, who launched her pro debut with a lead-sharing 68, also failed to rebound from a 74 in the second day as she closed out with a 72 and wound up at solo 12th with 214.
Dottie Ardina also made a 72 for joint 17th at 216 as the top ICTSI-backed bet placed second to Thai Pinrath Loomboonruang, who rallied with a 69 for a 213, in the battle for low amateur honors.
