Rianne rallies but loses playoff

Rianne Mikhaela Malixi missed a 10-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole, allowing overnight leader Natthakritta V. of Thailand to win the 88th Singha Thailand Amateur Open in Bangkok, Thailand Friday.

Four down at the start of the day, the 15-year-old Filipina rallied with five-under-par 65 to force a playoff with Natthakritta who closed with a 69.

Malixi collected seven birdies against two bogeys to finish 72 holes on 10-under par 270, the same output as Natthakritta.

During the playoff, both Malixi and Natthakritta reached the green in regulation, although the Thai was closer to the hole at five feet.

In boys’ action, Shinichi Suzuki closed with even-par 70 to finish fifth in the 88th Singha Thailand Amateur Open in Bangkok, Thailand Friday.

He finished on 4-over 284, eight shots behind Ashita P. of Thailand who sizzled for 65.

Tied for second on even-par 280 were Supapon A. and Arsit A. who carded 65 and 68, respectively.

Gabriel Manotoc and Kristoffer Arevalo were the next-best Filipinos on 18-over 298 after a 67 and 74, respectively.
