Golf: Chanettee fires brilliant eagle to stay on top at Thailand Mixed

Cha-Am, Thailand-

Promising teenager Chanettee Wannasaen crafted a brilliant ending eagle to hold onto the lead after round three of the Bt3 million Thailand Mixed hosted by TrustGolf at the Springfield Royal Country Club in Cha-Am on Saturday.

After struggling with her putts and going through 10 holes without a birdie, the 17-year-old girl finally got into the grove as she shot three straight birdies from holes 11-13. Despite a double-bogey on the 14th hole, she rebounded to send home a 36-foot eagle shot to remain on top of the leaders’ board after a third-round 69 and 17 under-par-199.

“I was a bit disappointed with myself by not shooting any score even I hit close to the pins at the front nine. But then I shot three birdies in a row only to make a double bogey by hitting the ball to the pond,” said Chanettee, winner of the Thailand LPGA National Qualifiers a few weeks ago.

“On the 18th,  I putted the ball down the slope for an eagle. I really needed it after that double bogey. For the final round, I’m still confident with my chance as this is not a big course. I need to shoot scores on par-five holes,” said the teenager.

With a win on Sunday, the talented teenager will become the second female winner on the Thailand TrustGolf Tour after Arpichaya Yubol who triumphed in the first Thailand Mixed 12 months ago.

Two-time Thai LPGA Tour winner Trichat Cheenglab produced an error-free 65 to trail the leader by two strokes on a total of 15 under-par-201.

“ I’m quite confident that if I play my game, hitting the fairways and go for birdie putts, I would stand a great chance on Sunday. I’m a bit excited to be in this position, but I will try to stay focussed on my game,” said the 26-year-old Bangkokian whose best finish in the Thailand Mixed was at joint third at the Black Mountain Golf Club in November.

Three shots behind the lead at tied third were Thaya Limpipolpaibul, the only man in the top three, and former LPGA player Pavarisa Yoktuan.

Thaya, 24, from Chiang Mai, hit seven birdies with one bogey on the 16th hole for a 66 and a total of 202. He has been chasing after his first career title after finishing at fifth as his best results in three tournaments.

“I didn’t look at the score and just realized I was three behind the lead after the post-match interview. I’m quite excited and would love to win my maiden title this week,” said Thaya.

Pavarisa, also with a round of 66, said: “To be in this position, you cannot help expecting yourself to win. But I don’t want to get under pressure. I have to relax like the way I played at the back nine today in order to produce good results.”
