The Filipino Olympian went into the final Round 3 as the leader of Round 2 and she never looked back, maintaining her top position from start to finish to earn the $18,000 winner’s prize money at the tourney that wrapped up on February 24, 2023, at the Anvaya Cove Golf & Sports Club in Morong, Bataan.

The first Filipina to top the United States LPGA Qualifying Tournament Stage who turned pro in 2020 said her victory is made more memorable by the fact that it is her first professional title and she won it at home.

Pagdanganan also said her victory boosts her confidence to face her upcoming tournaments.

“It’s a good jumpstart to my year…I feel like it helps my confidence throughout the year,” Pagdanganan said in the LPGT post-game interview.

Bianca Pagdanganan will next play the Epson Tour on March 3.
