Anne-Catherine Tanguay has a sense of drama! She qualified for the final round of the NW Arkansas Walmart Championship with an eagle on the last hole on Saturday. His last minute push allowed him to present a cumulative -2 after 36 holes, just enough score to avoid the cut.
M united his 5 iron, Tanguay has placed an approach from 178 yards to eight feet of this short par 5. “I had a putt down from left to right,” she told the Sun . “I knew I had to stall it to make the cut! [I am really happy.”
The Quebec City golfer will therefore be a fellow for the third time in a row on the LPGA circuit, having survived only one cup in her first 10 tournaments of the season.
Tanguay, however, seemed to be heading for an early exit, having committed a double bogey at the first hole of the day, then two bogeys in the following three. After four holes, she had a cumulative +3, given her 70 (-1) the day before. Things had barely improved after the 11th when she posted a +2. But birdies in the 12th and 15th prepared the ground for this famous eagle in the 18th. She handed a card of 70 as Friday.
Sherbrooke’s Maude-Aimée Leblanc, meanwhile, put a solid 69-point card on Saturday, but her cumulative +1 will keep her from participating in the Sunday dance.
Australian Minjee Lee and Japanese Nasa Hataoka share the lead at -13, two shots ahead of American Lexi Thompson.
