Bianca Pagdanganan is on a roll since her career best T9 performance at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. After the second round at Reynolds Lake Oconee, the 22-year-old is just one stroke off the lead along with Danielle Kang at 9-under.
“I feel really relaxed out there. I'm really enjoying this whole environment, and with the course being by the lake it's really beautiful. I mean, I just take everything shot by shot. I missed a green, but my mindset was just like, You know you can still save par,” said Pagdanganan, who stayed consistent after a first-round 68. “I guess it was more just having the positive mindset throughout the round and knowing I can bounce back from not-so-great-shots.”
Pagdanganan carded six birdies, saving her final one for her closing hole on No. 18 after a solid drive landed her 165 yards to the pin. It was one of the four birdies she had on each of the par-5s on Friday. She said there’s only a few things to tweak before heading out in the final grouping on moving day with Kang and leader Ally McDonald.
“Maybe practice a little bit more putting and then maybe a little of my woods. I don't know, some of my tee shots,” said Pagdanganan. “Try to get a little bit more confident, so maybe head to the range and try to work on those.”
