Dottie on track for LPGA tour card

By Adrian Flores

Dottie Ardina moved into a share of 32nd after the sixth round of the LPGA Q-Series, a qualifying tournament for 2023 regular tour cards held at the Highland Oaks in Dothan, Alabama.

Ardina, 29, scored a three-under-par 69 and 10-under 420 total, well inside the top 45—the cutoff line for those gunning for that important all-tournament access pass.

Five birdies against two bogeys catapulted Ardina to a big improvement in the standing.

Bianca Pagdanganan had a one-over-par 73 for 429 and tied 69th. She had a good opening nine of 35 but faltered coming home with a 38 for 73.

The long-hitter from Quezon City would have to play harder to get back into contention.

Isi Gabsa of Germany is way ahead with a 23-under-par 407 after a splendid eight-under-par 64.
