The New Zealand amateur women’s golf team completed a disappointing 10th place finish at the Queen Sirikit Cup in Taiwan.

The Kiwi team of Munchin Keh (Titirangi), Julianne Alvarez (Manor Park) and Lita Guo (North Shore) combined for a 31-over-par three round team total to finish well off the pace at the Sunrise Golf and Country Club.

They were 26 shots back from champions Australia who won the title by one shot from Japan in the format where the best two of three scores from each round counted.

Thai golfer Supamas Sangchan, who shot rounds of 75, 70 and 69, became the first woman from her country to secure the individual title at the Queen Sirikit Cup.

North Harbour’s Guo, who was making her debut for New Zealand, finished on a 16-over par total with rounds of 80, 77 and 75 to be the best of the Kiwi team, tying for 22nd. 

Wellington No1 Alvarez was one shot further back on a 17-over total after rounds of 79, 78 and 76 to be tied for 24th and the New Zealand amateur champion Munchin Keh , who had rounds of 78, 80 and 84, was 30th as the NZ team struggled on the grainy greens.

Australia has now won the title on nine occasions with the championship featuring Asia-Pacific nations.

Would you be happy to pay for PGA Tour coverage online?

Absolutely. I'll do whatever it takes to watch golf.

It depends on how good the service is.

If it's not on TV, I won't watch it.

What? The PGA Tour's not going to be on Sky TV?
