The New Zealand women's golf team has finished 10th at the 35th Queen Sirikit Cup in Taiwan.

Titirangi's Munchin Keh, Julianne Alvarez of Manor Park and North Shore's Lita Guo combined for a 31 over par three-round team total to finish well off the pace - fully 26 shots back from champions Australia who won the title by one shot from Japan.

The format sees the best two of three scores from each round counted.

Thai golfer Supamas Sangchan, who shot rounds of 75, 70 and 69, became the first woman from her country to secure the individual title at the Queen Sirikit Cup.
