DOTTIE Ardina bogeyed the tough No. 18 at resumption of the weather-delayed second round of the Jakarta Ladies Indonesia Open early Saturday and ended up with a second straight 72 to fall four shots behind Malaysian amateur Kelly Tan at the Palm Hill Golf and Country Club in Jakarta.
Ardina held her ground on another challenging day and knocked in a birdie on the par-3 17th before play was halted due to lightning late Friday.
But the Filipina failed to return a six-footer for par at resumption and holed out with a bogey for the second straight time.
With a 144 aggregate, the top ICTSI bet remained in joint sixth with Taiwanese pro Hsieh Yu-ling, who made a 73, but fell farther back heading to the last 18 holes of the US$200,000 championship.
Tan fired a bogey-free 69 to wrest the lead at 140, one stroke ahead of pros Smriti Mehra of India, who settled for a 72, and Thai Patcharachuta Kongkapan, who fired a 70.
Jayvie Agojo fumbled with a 77 for a share of 46th at 153, while Cyna Rodriguez blew a decent 73 start with an awful 81 and tumbled down to joint 50th at 154.
Over in Thailand, Princess Superal salvaged a 71 for a runner-up finish in the Thailand Amateur Open late Friday.
The Filipina reeled back from a disastrous triple-bogey mishap on No. 13 but fought back with two birdies in the last four holes.
