Amarin competes again at Thailand Mixed @ Gasson Panorama
“I know I’m capable of making it, but it has yet to happen. I’m here to win. Let’s see how it goes tomorrow,” said Amarin.
Ekpharit, who has a Taiwanese father, capitalized on his hot driver and sharp irons to post his lowest score of the week at 63, which saw him tied for second place alongside Arpichaya on 15 under par 201.
“I couldn’t be happier if I hit nine under. I served really well and created slight birdie chances with precise approach shots,” said the 22-year-old player, who is also eyeing his first win.
“I’ve never played in the final group on the last day. It’s a new experience for me but I’ll try to play my game and not put myself under pressure,” he added.
Arpichaya, 20, with eight birdies and a bogey on the 14th for a 65, has a good chance of claiming her second Thailand mixed title after winning the first Thailand mixed event in February last year.
“My approach to the final will be the same as today. That means chilling out there and not thinking too much about winning,” said the former Thailand LPGA Tour No. 1.
Rising teenager Sirapob Yapala fired a 69 to put himself two shots behind at 203, while Ronnachai Jamnong followed at 205, two shots back.
Midway leader Kammalas Namuangruk was far from at his best as he had to cope with a 75 that included a double bogey on the 10th, three bogeys and two birdies for a total of 206, the same result as three-time champion Chanettee Wannasaen who carded a card 69.
