TAIWAN – Princess Superal and Cyna Rodriguez groped for putting form and missed a Top 10 finish in the Party Golfers Ladies Open ruled by 14-year-old Chia Yen Wu at the National Golf Country Club in Miaoli County here yesterday.
Playing in calmer condition after battling it through brutal winds in the first two days, Superal and Rodriguez found the undulating surface too tough to read, hampering their final round charge in the $100,000 championship, the first co-sanctioned event by the Ladies Philippine Golf Tour abroad with the Taiwan LPGA.
The two circuits will next joint stage the Philippine Ladies Masters in February.
Superal flubbed a number of makeable birdie putts and muffed short par-putts, including a two-footer the par-5 No. 16 that saw her leave her head down for seconds in disbelief. That marred her closing one-over 73 and typified the Pinay bets’ day-long struggle on the unreceptive greens.
