He was eight-under standard after 13 openings, following five additions in succession from the 10th opening, yet consecutive intruder at the fourteenth and fifteenth gave the benefit to Janewattananond. He expected to discover something unique and he holed an extensive birdie putt on the eighteenth to constrain additional openings.
