PETALING JAYA: Mirabel Ting’s hopes of becoming the first non-European to win the European Young Masters remains intact.

The 13-year-old Malaysian is now just two shots off the pace heading into the final round of the 54-hole tournament after carding a one-under 71 at Golf & Spa Kuneticka’s course in the Czech Republic on Friday.

Mirabel, who tied for the first-round lead with a sublime 67, settled for joint third after marking her scorecard with two birdies and one bogey.

She trails leader Paula Schulz-Hanssen of Germany by just two strokes.

Schulz-Hanssen seized the penultimate stage lead by carding a 67 to take a one-shot lead over second-placed Lilas Pinthier of France.

Mirabel is one of the four Asia-Pacific Golf Confederation (APGC) golfers invited to compete in the Under-16 tournament.

The others are Pongsapak Laopakdee of Thailand and India’s Arjun Bhati and Pranavi Urs.

Pongsapak is also going great guns as he sits four shots behind leader Michael Alexander Mjaaseth of Norway in the boys’ division.

Arjun and Pranavi were placed joint 24th and joint 16th in the boys’ and girls’ categories respectively.



130: Michael Alexander Mjaaseth (Nor) 64-66; 132: Jose Luis Ballester (Spa) 65-67; 134: Pongsapak Laopakdee (Tha) 66-68; 135: Yannick Malik (Ger) 64-71; 137: Alessio Battista (Ita) 67-70.


136: Paula Schulz-Hanssen (Ger) 69-67; 137: Lilas Pinthier (Fra) 68-69; 138: Mirabel Ting (Mas) 67-71, Anne Sterre Den Dunnen (Ned) 73-65; 139: Leonor Medeiros (Por) 68-71.
