Pinay golfers fight for LPGA Tour cards

PHOTOGRAPH COURTESY OF LPGA.com PAULINE del Rosario has consistently figured well in the first two stages of the Q-Series and she’s hoping she can nail the coveted LPGA card this weekend.

Dottie Ardina, Pauline del Rosario and Clariss Guce will vie for outright full LPGA Tour status for next year in the Q-Series slated this week.

They join 101 players who will see action in the six-round event which starts Thursday at Magnolia Grove Golf Course in Mobile, Alabama.

The trio will try to follow the footsteps of Bianca Pagdanganan who earned her card after finishing well within the CME List at the end of the regular season.

Now this is the final chance for them to make it to the big league as only the top 45 finishers will earn that privilege.

Del Rosario will have the earliest tee off at 7:45 a.m., followed by Guce at 8:25 p.m., and Ardina at 10:15 a.m.

The 25-year-old Del Rosario made the Q-Series after her sterling performance in the earlier stages.

She had finished up her second full season on the Epson Tour, rising from season to season. Del Rosario ended her season in 2023 at 79th in the Race for the Card, climbing up nearly 30 places from her finish at 103rd in 2022.

Ardina has been straddling between the LPGA and the lower-tier Epson Tour while trying to win back her full card.
