MANILA, Philippines — Dottie Ardina matched par 72 and moved to joint 18th as Clariss Guce continued to flounder after three rounds of the Carolina Golf Classic controlled by Slovenia’s Ana Belac at Pinehurst No. 9 course Saturday.

Ardina hit all but two fairways but struggled with her irons, missing eight greens although she made up for the struggle with superb putting, finishing with 28 for a one-birdie, one-bogey round and a 220 total.

Though she improved 10 spots better from the previous round, the ICTSI-backed shotmaker fell 13 strokes behind Belac, who all but secured her maiden win with a huge six-shot lead over American Lauren Coughlin heading to the final 18 holes.

Guce struggled with an 82 marred by two double bogeys and six bogeys, and tumbled to joint 42nd at 225. Fil-Am Demi Runas had a 77 for a 226.
