Del Rosario launches drive in Q-Series

MANILA, Philippines – Pauline del Rosario finds herself in the same blend of excitement and pressure as the rest of the 104 LPGA hopefuls as she steps onto the first mound of the RTJ Magnolia Grove in Mobile, Alabama Thursday (Friday Manila time).

Despite this being her first Q-Series appearance, the 25-year-old Epson Tour campaigner is keen on taking on a formidable roster of bidders from all over, stressing the importance of approaching the competition one day at a time throughout the grueling six-round tournament.

“Since this is my first time to play in the Q-Series, I will be taking it one day at a time,” said del Rosario. “Six days is a lot of golf and anything can happen. But I have all the intent to have status on the LPGA. I will see this week if my game has what it takes.”

“I prepared to the best of my ability coming into this week,” she said.

While she acknowledges the tough competition, del Rosario also braces for adverse weather conditions, anticipating cold and rainy days during the tournament,
