PALM SPRING, Calif. — Red Deer’s Adrienne White turned in a solid opening round of the first sectional tournament of the LPGA qualifying school.

The top 30 following the final round will advance directly to the third and final qualifying tournament, Dec. 2-6, in Daytona Beach, Fla . The rest of the field can compete in the second qualifier, Sept. 29-Oct. 2 in Venice, Fla.
