A compact but talent-laden Thai roster, including four who have notched victories on the Ladies Philippine Golf Tour, goes all-out to re-stamp its class in the ICTSI Tagaytay Midlands which gets going today at the Midlands layout in Tagaytay City.

Thanutra Boonraksasat spearheads the country’s perennial regional rivals’ campaign in the 54-hole championship, seeking not only a follow-up to her victory at Manila Southwoods last March but also make up for her final round meltdown that led to a third place effort to the last LPGT event at Royal Northwoods won in runaway fashion by Pauline del Rosario three weeks ago.

But three other Thais are also tipped to contend for top honors in the P750,000 event serving as the ninth leg of LPGT put up by ICTSI and organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc., including Supakchaya Pattaranakrueng, Onkanok Soisuwan and Saruttaya Ngam-usawan.
