Superal rebounds as Ph wrests 2-shot lead


Princess Superal took over from where teammate Miya Legaspi left off as she shot a three-under 69 in tough condition to power the Philippines to a two-stroke lead over China and Korea and closer to a breakthrough victory in the Queen Sirikit Cup at the Saujana Golf and Country Club in Malaysia on Thursday. With ICTSI teammate Pauline del Rosario recovering from a horrendous opening 84 with a gutsy 72, the Pinay golfers assembled a 141 and broke away from first round co-leader South Korea with a 36-hole aggregate of 284 heading to the final round of the 54-hole championship which features 13 countries in the Asia Pacific region. South Korea, which has dominated the event for six straight years since 2007 at The Country Club before Australia broke its run in Taiwan last year, carded a second straight 143 for a 286, enabling China to gain a share of second by matching the Philippines’ 141 output.
