Ardina loses in 3-way playoff

Jenny Coleman birdied the extra hole to beat Dottie Ardina and Sophie Hausmann in the IOA Golf Classic which was reduced to 36 holes due to bad weather and unplayable conditions at the Alaqua Country Club in Longwood, Florida on Sunday.

Coleman, who finished her second round on Saturday, hit her approach to five feet and made the putt to win the event.

All three-finished tied on 10-under following the resumption of the second round early Sunday.

Ardina climbed the leaderboard after a blistering six-under-par 65.

Returning to the course after playing only one hole on Saturday, the
29-year-old Filipina reached the turn on 4-under after firing an eagle on 13 and birdies on 10 and 12.

Missing only one green, she added three more birdies going home against a lone bogey to get a share of the lead with Jenny Coleman and Sophie Hausmann on 10-under.

Ardina was part of the wave that could not finish her second round Saturday, only getting in one hole before play was suspended.

However, the former Epson champion took to the course early Sunday morning and was able to put together a six-under round that her eagle on 13 emphasized. Ardina’s 65 was good enough to push her into a playoff with Coleman and Hausmann.

“You know, it’s tough because of the rain delay. I had a good start in the one hole I played on Saturday; I made birdie,” Ardina said.

“The restart for this morning happened, and I made an early eagle and made a couple of birdies coming in, so I was very happy with the way I played today.”

Abby Arevalo, who was 5-under through 36 holes, settled for a tie for 11th place while Bianca Pagdanganan came in joint 48th.

The final round began shortly after the second round ended. However, players were taken off the course after the tournament was shortened to 36 holes.

Roberta Liti (-9) and Allison Emrey (-8) finished the tournament in fourth and fifth place, respectively. Both players were able to card solid four-under second rounds to maintain their spots in the top 5 for the tournament.
