Bianca, Yuka return to action

She made the cut in two majors — KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and US Women’s Open

Bianca Pagdanganan comes out of a five-week layoff in the CP Women’s Open that kicks off Thursday at the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club in Ottawa, Canada.

The 24-year-old Filipina last saw action in July during the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational where she missed the cut despite shooting eight-under par 62 in the second round.

Pagdanganan will start on the 10th hole at 1:59 p.m. in the company of Caroline Masson and Giulia Molinaro.

She has so far played 12 events in the Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour, making the cut only six times.
