Lalita Patipaksiri finished in a tie for 9th place at the annual University of California, Irvine’s Anteater Invitational. The event was contested at Dove Canyon Country Club in Rancho Santa Margarita, California, March 29-30, 2010. Patipaksiri shot rounds of 79-75-71 (225). Her play is even more remarkable when you understand that Lalita is 5’2″ tall. Lalita, rely’s on her accuracy with her wood’s and her short game to overcome her lack of length with the driver. She is a good putter with touch and feel and this skill set carries over into her chipping and pitching.
Lalita’s teammate, Hillary Packard finished second with round’s of 73-70-74 (217). Hillary would have won the event if not for a “snowman” on the 6th hole.
