Boonraksasat seventh at Thai LPGA Championship

NAKHON RATCHASIMA, Thailand – Former Kansas golfer Thanuttra Boonraksasat finished the 54-hole Singha-SAT Toyota Thai LPGA Championship in a tie for seventh place with a 5-under-par 211 at the Rancho Charnvee Resort and Country Club Friday.
Boonraksasat, whose collegiate career culminated at the 2014 NCAA Championship, opened the event Wednesday at 2-under after firing a first-round 70. She collected three birdies in the round and posted a 2-under effort on the front nine. As a result, Boonraksasat ended the first day tied for the lead of the 78-golfer field.
On Thursday, Boonraksasat shook off a double bogey on the second hole and ended her round at 1-under. After 36 holes, she was tied for sixth on the leaderboard. The final round Friday was pretty much a mirror image of the first round. Boonraksasat scored a pair of birdies on the front nine, before posting a bogey on the 10th hole and adding a late birdie to play the back nine even.
With the seventh-place finish, Boonraksasat ranks No. 29 on the Thai LPGA money list. She has played 17 rounds over six events. The official online source for Kansas Athletics, Williams Education Fund contributions, tickets, merchandise, multimedia, photos and much, much more.
