Malaysia's Kelly Tan battled to a tie against Thailand's Pajaree Anannarukarn in the Bank of Hope LPGA Match Play yesterday, giving herself a shot at advancing to the knockout stage.

Tan fought back from two down after 14 holes with birdies on 15 and the final hole to earn a point in her second round-robin match.

Having upset Danielle Kang in her first match, Tan now has three points from a win and a tie in Group 4. The Malaysian ladies' number one faces 2009 US Women's Open champion Ji Eun Hee of Korea in her final round-robin match today, needing a win to progress. Five-time LPGA winner Ji leads the group with four points from two wins.

The 64-player event features a round-robin of 16 groups of four players, with each group winner progessing to the single-elimination knockout stage to determine the champion. If players are tied for the lead in a group after round-robin play, a sudden-death playoff will be used to determine the group winner.
