Thais dominate ICTSI ladies golfest

BAGUIO CITY – Chakansim Khamborn outduelled Chommapat Pongthanarak in their hunt for birdies coming in, cashing in on a two-shot swing on No. 17 to force a tie as the Thais kept their domination of the ICTSI Camp John Hay Ladies Championship at John Hay Golf Club here yesterday.

Pongthanarak actually looked poised to seizing the solo lead with a four-under card built on a three-birdie binge at the back but stumbled with a bogey on the par-5 17th which Khamborn birdied as they finished with identical three-under 66s and grabbed a share of the lead at 135s after two rounds of the $1.5 million event put up by ICTSI.

While erstwhile co-leaders Princess Superal and amateur Mariel Tee failed to keep in step and reeled back with 71 and 74, respectively, Waralee Atcharerk and Korean amateur Lee Ji Hyeon stayed in the hunt with 67 and 68 for 136 and 137, respectively, guaranteeing a final round shootout at least among four players in the tournament serving as the second leg of the new Ladies Philippine Golf Tour season.
