KU golfer Sakdee in 9th at Big 12


— Kansas University junior Pornvipa Sakdee shot a second-round score of even-par 72 to keep herself among the top 10 at the Big 12 Women’s Golf Championship on Saturday at The Dominion Country Club.

At even-par 144, Sakdee is tied for ninth.

Sakdee placed fourth at last year’s Big 12 meet on the same course.

“‘Faii’ (Sakdee) is very comfortable playing here. Her long game is one of her strengths, which is a benefit on this layout since it’s a tree-lined course with a couple of reachable par-5s,” KU coach Erin O’Neil said. “Faii is also very competitive, and competing in a conference championship definitely gets her dialed in to win.”

As a team, KU is ninth of nine teams at 598. Oklahoma State leads with 574.

Kansas’ other scores: Yupaporn Kawinpakorn, tied for 12th, 145; Ariadna Fonseca Diaz, tied for 40th, 154; Pitsinee Winyarat, 43rd, 155; and Victoria Chandra, 44th, 156. TCU’s Sabina Pena leads at 140.

The tournament will conclude today.
