White battling at Q-school
PALM SPRING, Calif. — Red Deer’s Adrienne White turned in a solid opening round of the first sectional tournament of the LPGA qualifying school.
White shot an even-par 72, which leaves her in a tie for 35th following the first of four rounds. The leader shot a six-under 66. 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.
As it stands White is only one stroke out of 24th place and two back of 10th.
