Pinay golfers stay in Q-Series hunt

Ardina hit three birdies but stumbled with four bogeys for a 37-35 card at the par-71 layout and remained tied at 43rd, this time along with Guce, who failed to sustain her third round 68 with a two-over 73.

Starting at the backside, Guce actually birdied No. 17 but bogeyed the next two and after a run of pars at the front, she holed out with another bogey on the ninth to drop from a previous joint 28th position.

Pagdanganan, meanwhile, made her move with a two-birdie, one-bogey card and though she stood down at tied 64th, the Stage I low medalist wheeled back into contention for a spot in the last two rounds of the grueling two, 72-hole final phase of the LPGA Qualifying Tournament.
