Princess Superal failed to launch a final round charge despite an eagle-spiked 72, settling for joint fourth with Jennifer Hahn in the 2016 Arizona Women’s Open ruled by Kaitlin Park in wire-to-wire fashion at the Sun City Country Club in Sun City Wednesday.
Superal, who fell by six with a 73 in the second round, went on an attack mode early but hit errant shots instead and continued to grope for putting form, fumbling with three bogeys against a bogey at the back where they teed off before drilling a 14-foot eagle putt on the par-5 third hole.
But she missed three birdie putts inside eight feet in the last six holes, closing out with a 34 and a 72 for a 213, six shots behind Park’s 207 total.
Park blew a 34 start with a two-over 38 but the ace Californian still ran away with the crown at 207, three ahead over Texan Celine Boutier, who rallied with a 68 for a 210.
Brittany Benvenuto of Pennsylvania placed third at 212 after a 70.
Filipino amateur Regan de Guzman also wavered with a 74 and dropped to joint seventh at 216.
Superal, De Guzman, along with Cyna Rodriguez, Dottie Ardina and Mia Piccio will next see action in the LPGA Q-School Final Stage from Nov. 30-Dec. 4 at Daytona Beach, along with 80 other aspirants from all over who will be fighting of 20 LPGA cards for next year.
