Ardina on the dot of projected cutoff line in LPGA Q-Series

By Adrian Flores

Dottie Ardina closed out with a one-under-par 71 to bolster her quest for a regular card in the Ladies Professional Golfers Association (LPGA) Tour for 2023.

That 71 gave her a 351 in five rounds into the LPGA Q-Series, the qualifying tournament for those seeking to gain access to all tournaments next year.

Currently, she is tied with seven others right on the projected cutoff line where a total of 45 players will receive the coveted LPGA cards.

Bianca Pagdanganan, one of the long hitters in the LPGA, skied to an 80 for 356. She needs to step up big time to catch and move up the standings.

Lauren Hartlage of the US remained on top with 341 after a three-under 69 at the Highlands course (front nine) and Marshwood course (back nine) of the Highland Oaks Golf Club in Dothan, Alabama.
