LPGA Thai Watch: Ariya Jutanugarn Low Amateur At 2011 Kraft Nabisco Championship

Ok, I am going to start a Thai watch for the LPGA on my blog. I am half-Thai myself, so call me a homer, that’s ok :) 15-year old amateur star Ariya Jutanugarn finished as the low amateur at the 2011 Kraft Nabisco Championship. Actually, that was assured at the end of play Friday when she was the only amateur to make the cut. But more than just making the cut, she finished T25, which is fantastic, much higher than I had expected. Thai-American Stacy Prammanasudh finished T19, while Pornanong Phatlum finished T72. Prammanasudh currently sits 24th on the money list, while Phatlum registers at 50th. Thai-Korean player Aree Song is 80th on the money list.
