NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 17/09/2016

New Zealand have let their standards slip on the final day of the women's world amateur team golf championship in Mexico, dropping to a 19th-place finish.

A fixture in 11th place through each of the first three rounds of the Espirito Santo Trophy tournament, the Kiwi trio of Wenyung Keh, Julianne Alvarez and Chantelle Cassidy all struggled on Saturday.

Keh's four-over 75 and Alvarez's 77 were the two counting scores while Cassidy's 78 was discarded.

It put them 10-over for the day and 16-over overall.

Korea were commanding winners of the biennial event which comprised 55 nations.

Champions for three of the last four editions, Korea's 29-under tally eclipsed the eight-under of second-placed Switzerland.

Korea's Hye Jin Choi topped the individual standings by two shots on 14-under while Keh was the best of the Kiwis in a share of 21st on four-over.

The men's equivalent tournament, the Eisenhower Trophy, will be held at the same venue next week.
