Uy falls short with rally, ties for 4th

Dante Navarro - The Philippine Star

MIAOLI COUNTY, Taiwan – Daniella Uy put on one big surge midway through the final round to pull within two but hobbled when it mattered most, finishing with a four-under 68 for joint fourth in the Party Ladies Golfers Open won by Hsieh Yu Ling at the National Golf and Country Club here yesterday.

Nine shots behind Hsieh after 36 holes, Uy broke a run of pars with a six-under feat in a seven-hole stretch from No. 5, spiking her stirring rally with an eagle on the par-5 No. 7 and sparking hopes for the Filipina shotmaker to pull off one of the most incredible comebacks in both the TLPGA (LPGA of Taiwan) and Ladies Philippine Golf Tour.

But after moving within two off the local ace five flights behind the championship group with back-to-back birdies from No. 10, Uy bogeyed the 12th then dropped another stroke on the par-5 13th, falling behind by four again and settling for pars the rest of the way.

The former Junior World titlist actually closed within three after her last bogey as Hsieh, who struggled with a frontside 37, bogeyed the 10th.
