Thitikul , who turned 15 on Tuesday, is one of two players in the field to have won a professional event, having won the Ladies European Thailand Championship in Pattaya last July before the- then year- old won the Southeast Asian Games individual and team golds in Malaysia a month later. The second- ranked Thai in the field at 53rd on the WAGR, Thitikul again showed her nerveless appetite for the big occasion by carding eight birdies over the New Tanjong course. Teeing off on 10, she birdied her first two holes, bogeyed 12, then birdied 13, 14 and 18 to move to four- under at the turn. Birdies at one, three and eight — where she holed a foot putt — moved her to seven- under before she three- putted the par- four ninth for bogey, finishing one behind her best- ever score for 18 holes.

After reeling off five birdies in her opening nine, Yasuda was in a class of her own, finishing with an incredible eight-shot buffer over defending champion Attaya Thitikul. The Gold Coaster came unstuck early on Sunday, with bogies on five and nine followed by a rollercoaster back nine, eventually signing for a three-over-par 75 and a share of seventh. But the ever-beaming year-old was pleased with her week, knowing she returns home with a top finish and plenty of experience.
