Meadow misses full LPGA Tour card by three at Daytona Beach

​​​​​​LPGA and Symetra Tour Qualifying School - Stage III, Hills and Jones Courses, Daytona Beach, Florida

  • 04 December 2016


Stephanie Meadow played her heart out at LPGA Qualifying School over five rounds at Daytona Beach, Florida and finished in a tie for 27th position after five rounds over the Jones and Hills courses.

She teed off on the 10th and had a hot start to her final round as she opened with a birdie and added another at her 8th. A dropped shot on her 12th hole was rescued by a birdie on her 17th but it was not enough for the Northern Irish hopeful.  

American Jaye Marie Green emerged on top after finishing on 13 under par over the five gruelling rounds.

Meadow was already guaranteed category 17 (conditional) LPGA status for the 2017 season before beginning play this week but she needed to finish in the 20 to secure category 12 (full) status. She hovered between being one-three shots off the top 20 places over the final rounds but couldn't quite break through, as she missed the top 20 by three shots.

World number two ranked amateur and Curtis Cup GB&I star, Bronte Law finished in a tie for 24th, just two shots off top flight qualification.


T27th – 73, 70, 73, 73, 70 (-1) – Stephanie Meadow
