Golf: Ardina gains 2nd round, but Unson, Uy bow out
Dottie Ardina matched Katelyn Reynolds’ routine par on No. 18 to prevail, 1-up, and advance to the second round of the match play event of the US Girls’ Junior Championship at the Olympia Fields Country Club in Chicago Wednesday.
Ardina, who struggled in the 36-hole stroke play eliminations and wound up 38th, built a two-hole cushion over her 27th-ranked rival from California with a par and a birdie on Nos. 10 and 11, then bucked Reynolds’ birdie on No. 17 with a par on the last hole to reach the Last 32 stage.
But ICTSI teammates Andie Unson and Daniella Uy bowed to their higher-ranked rivals. Unson lost to No. 6 Emma Talley of Kentucky, 5 and 3, while Uy took a 7-and-6 defeat at the hands of No. 8 Gabriella Then, also of California.
