    The 19-year-old Santiwiwatthanaphong closed with a 3-under 69 in windy conditions to finish at 6-under 210.

    Dottie Ardina came up with a second straight 70 to climb from 30th to joint 11th.

    The Filipina golfer had an opening 5 and finished with a 215 total.

    "I'm so happy and proud of myself," Santiwiwatthanaphong said. "This is a hard golf course and it was very windy so I'm just happy that I came through."
