Pornanong Phatlum Opens Her Bag
Thailand native Pornanong Phatlum held on to her first-round lead and captured her first career LPGA Tour victory at the HSBC LPGA Brasil Cup 2012. Phatlum fired a 6-under 67 on the course at Itanhanga Golf Club in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to finish at 13-under-par and take a four-shot victory over Taiwan native Amy Hung.
Phatlum entered the final round of the unofficial event tied for the lead with Karine Icher at 7-under-par. She got off to a hot start on Sunday with five birdies on the front nine en route to running away with the tournament. Phatlum becomes the fourth different champion of the HSBC LPGA Brasil Cup following Mariajo Uribe in 2011, Meaghan Francella's win in 2010 and Catriona Matthew in 2009.
"I'm so excited today," Phatlum said after her victory. "I play really well today and I played my own game. I'm just very happy."
