Thais poised to dominate field even as Ardina lurks behind

LUBAO, Pampanga, December 6 ------ Thai Pimpadsorn Sangkagaro closed out with three straight birdies to shoot a five-under 67 and force a three-way tie for the lead with Yupaporn Kawinpakorn and erstwhile solo leader Ornicha Konsunthea as the Thais poised to dominate the ICTSI Pradera Verde Ladies Classic here yesterday.

But Dottie Ardina kept the troika within sight, her bogey-free 70 pulling her to within one off the leaders at 140 heading to the final 18 holes of the R1-million championship serving as the second leg of the 2019 Ladies Philippine Golf Tour. The LPGA Tour-bound Filipina, however, will not only have to chase three Thais in front of her at 139 but also try to fend off five others behind her. Princess Superal blew a two-under card after five holes with three bogeys the rest of the way, finishing with a 73 in another windy day at the Pradera Verde layout. She dropped to joint ninth.
