Pattaya (Thailand), Jun 24 (PTI) Indian golfer Vani Kapoor rounded off the week with a modest one-over 73 to finish tied 54th at the Ladies European Thailand Championship here today.

Vani, who has also been playing on the LET Access Tour, had four birdies against five bogeys in her card at the Phoenix Gold Golf and Country Club. She totalled six-over 294.

Thailand's Kanyalak Preedasuttijit won the Ladies European Thailand Championship on her home course. With rounds of 70, 68, 66 and 69, the 20-year-old from Chonburi posted a winning total of 15-under-par, earning 45,000 euros and a place in this year's two European Majors -- the Ricoh Women's British Open and The Evian Championship.

She ended a stroke clear of 17-year-old Korean amateur Selin Hyun, who shot a sizzling 65 in the final round, improving by 10 strokes on her opening round of 75.

Fellow Thai player Chonlada Chayanun shot 69 and ended four strokes back in third place, but took home the second prize money worth 27,000 euros due to Hyun's amateur status.

Anne Van Dam from the Netherlands closed with a 71 to end alone in fourth on nine-under-par
