Pornanong Phatlum Wins Hitachi Ladies Classic on TLPGA

Pornanong Phatlum dominated the Hitachi Ladies Classic, beating the JLPGA's Miki Saiki by 8 shots. With the previous week's winner Ya Ni Tseng deciding not to play this past weekend, after all, the biggest names in the field were Taiwan's living legend Ai Yu Tu and China's Na Zhang, who had a great season a few years back on the JLPGA before injuring her back. Well, Zhang finished in 3rd and Tu finished in 4th!

Here's how the notables did in the 54-hole event:

1st/-5 Pornanong Phatlum
2nd/+3 Miki Saiki
3rd/+4 Na Zhang
4th/+6 Ai Yu Tu
T5/+7 Ji Na Lim, Porani Chutichai
T7/+8 Nontaya Srisawang
T9/+9 Russamee Gulyanamitta, Maiko Wakabayashi

T11/+10 Yun Jye Wei, Mi Rim Lee, Tiffany Tavee
T14/+11 Amy Hung, Christine Song, Izumi Narita, Titiya Plucksataporn
T19/+12 Hong Mei Yang, Yuki Sakurai
T24/+13 Teresa Lu
T29/+14 Aiko Ueno
T31/+15 Danah Bordner
T37/+17 Julie Lu
T51/+21 Kuniko Maeda
T54/+22 Libby Smith

Low American goes to Tiffany Tavee; disappointing results for Bordner and Smith. I was surprised to see Teresa Lu playing such consistently mediocre golf the last few weeks; going +32 in 162 holes in her home country is not the way she probably imagined her 2011 beginning.
