Ally McDonald, chasing her first LPGA title, is seeking the flawless birthday present as she reeled off five consecutive birdies to grab a one-stroke lead after the second round of the Drive On Championship on Friday.
She registered three birdies, including back-to-back ones in the 5th and 6th holes for a 6-under heading into the back nine. "It's not shying away from it. I missed a green, but my mindset was just like, You know you can still save par", Pagdanganan, who stayed consistent after a first-round 68, said in an interview posted on LPGA.com.
It was a continuation of her impressive showing in the first two rounds of the LPGA Driving On Championship, part of her debut campaign on the LPGA Tour.
No spectators are allowed on the course but boaters on the lakeside layout honked horns for good shotmaking throughout the round. "It was a little frustrating, I was heating so many good shots but I couldn't get any putts to drop". "Getting everything together and just firing from the start will be pretty key".
"I've never doubted my ability, but I've definitely questioned whether I would be able to win out here", McDonald said.
Danielle Kang was third at 11-under after a 70 in the event added to the schedule because of the Covid-19 pandemic that shut down women's golf for five months.

That is even tougher with her parents at the resort, bringing a birthday cake to celebrate today that would taste sweeter if she gets her breakthrough victory. "I'm very grateful and happy". Kang curled in a tricky downhill 12-foot birdie putt at the par-3 14th, reaching 15-under to pull within one with her third birdie in four holes.
McDonald bogeyed the first hole and made a big mid-round run with five birdies in an eight-hole stretch.
"I'm rolling it well", Kang said.
Before that, the 22-year-old Pagdanganan - a gold medal victor during the 2018 Asian Games and double-gold medalist in the Southeast Asian Games here a year ago - and then made a 15-foot putt on 17, her first on the back nine after seven straight pars. "It was out by a couple inches. Just not the time to do that".
When McDonald chipped to three feet and sank a par putt at 16, she reclaimed a four-stroke lead.
Pagdanganan completed a birdie, birdie finish to secure a podium finish on 14 under, and Kang tapped in for her birdie to leave the stage clear for an emotional McDonald to safely two-putt for the winning par.
