The playoff for the final five match-play spots has begun this morning at the par-5 12th hole. The first threesome of Emily Wright, Mariana Sims and Marissa Dodd just completed the hole, with Wright making a bogey-6 and the other two recording pars. If the final three players make par or better on the hole, we'll have our match-play draw complete. Dottie Ardina, 2008 semifinalist Alejandra Cangrejo and Hannah Sodersten are in the final threesome.
The playoff for the final spots has come to an end. Alejandra Cangrejo of Colombia, a semifinalist in 2009, made a 6, as did Hannah Sodersten, but Dottie Ardina of the Philippines recorded a 7. Ardina was eliminated. Wright, who also made a 6, slipped into the field.
The first round matches have begun. We'll have 32 today.
