The 44-year-old Filipino bogeyed seven holes, including three which he three-putted against only two bogeys.

He finished 72 holes on 5-over 289, 18 strokes behind winner Riki Kawamoto who edged fellow Japanese Yuto Katsuragawa by 1 shot.

Kawamoto rallied with a 69 to spoil Katsuragawa who faded with a 74.

Meanwhile, Dottie Ardina barged into the Top 10 after firing a two-under-par 70 in the second round of the Toyota Classic at the Ol’ Colony golf course in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

The 28-year-old Filipina sits on 5-under 139 to share ninth place but is 10 strokes behind American Bailey Tardy who bristled with a 65.

Ardina made two birdies in the first seven holes before ending the front nine with a bogey. Her other birdie came on 16.

Abby Arevalo and Pauline del Rosario also made the cut after carding a 73 and 70, respectively but Clariss Guce was eliminated after a 75 Arevalo bucked an opening double bogey with two birdies against a bogey to bring her total to 1-under 143.

Del Rosario, on the other hand, was right on the number on 1-over after nailing four birdies against two bogeys.

Tardy made seven birdies in the front nine alone before cooling down with a birdie and a bogey coming home.

Five shots off the pace was Linnea Strom who returned a 67.

Over in Taiwan, Miguel Tabuena and Justin Quiban finished the Mercuries Taiwan Masters on similar 2-over par 290s in the Taiwan Golf and Club Sunday.
