Ishiguro-Atlan earned her spot in the field by placing fifth at the LPGA Teaching and Club Professionals National Championship in August at Pinehurst in North Carolina. In that three-day tournament, she shot a 74, 76 and 79 on Pinehurst No. 8, finishing 13 strokes over par and earning a purse of $2,200.

“We are all so proud of her!” said Castle Oaks General Manager Dominic Atlan.

Next week’s Senior LPGA championship will be held over 54 holes for a total purse of $600,000. The event will be televised live on Golf Channel from 1 to 4 p.m. during the three competition days.
