Patty, Atthaya share lead

Thailand’s Patty Tavatanakit carded a brilliant 8-under-par 64 to join compatriot Atthaya Thitikul in the lead after the opening round of the US$1.6-million Honda LPGA Thailand yesterday, with the pair ahead by a shot. ANA Inspiration winner Patty, who captured her maiden major last month in her rookie year on tour, rolled in the last of her nine birdies on the par-5 18th hole to surge ahead. The only blip for the 21-year-old on a sweltering day at the Siam Country Club in Chon Buri was a double-bogey on the sixth hole of the Pattaya Old Course. Atthaya also excelled in the heat with two eagles — on the 10th and the final hole — to stay in contention for her first title on the LPGA Tour. Another local favorite Ariya Jutanugarn, a two-time major winner, was tied-third alongside Denmark’s Nanna Koerstz Madsen after hitting 65.
