Rianne Malixi settles for joint fifth after a closing 73 in WAAP

February 5 ------ Rianne Malixi made only one birdie to close with a one-over-par 73 and settle for joint fifth place at the close of the Women’s Amateur Asia Pacific Championship at the Siam Country Club’s Waterside course in Thailand. 


Twenty-four hours after setting a record nine-under-par 63, the 16-year-old went cold and took 15 holes before she made her first and only birdie. By that time, she had already bogeyed 9 and 14. On 13-under, Malixi finished five shots behind Chinese-Taipei winner Wu Chun-Wei who carded a 72. 


Korean Lee Hysong took second place on 16-under following a 69 while Thai Sriwong Achiraya climbed to third on 15-under after a sizzling 66. Another Thai, Rubrong Pimpisa, was in fourth spot on 14-under after a 70. 

Tied with Malixi was Korean Kim Minsol who returned a 68.
