“As of late I broke the bathroom window and needed to climb out as a result of I were given caught in there,” Cheenglab defined. “I used to be nervous as a result of my [playing partners] had been looking ahead to me at the fairway, so I used my elbow and I kicked it out.

In any case I were given out and made bogey, however then there have been 4 extra birdies after that.”
Lighting fixtures up the flatstick at the front-nine (her back-nine) to sooner or later publish a 2nd consecutive 68 (-4), Cheenglab now sits simply two pictures off fellow rookie and chief Sara Kjellker on 10-under par.
