Boonraksasat triumphs at S’woods
Thanutra Boonraksasat held off Princess Superal, wresting control late then surviving a wobbly finish to hack out a one-stroke victory in the ICTSI Manila Southwoods Ladies Championship at the Legends course in Carmona, Cavite, on Thursday.
Boonraksasat hit a clutch birdie on No. 13 to take charge and went 2-up on Superal’s bogey. That—plus Superal holing out with a bogey for a 71—cushioned her bogey-bogey finish that iced her 69.
The Thai finished with a 13-under 203 total worth P350,000, joining the growing list of winners from the country’s perennial regional rivals, who dominated the Ladies Philippine Golf Circuit with six victories out of 11 tournaments last year.
“I have mixed emotions at this point but I’m definitely feeling good,” said Boonraksasat.
