Georgia Hall has topped the qualifiers at LPGA Qualifying Stage II in Florida and will now progress to Final Qualifying next month.
The highest ranked played in the field, the European Solheim Cup star looked in control throughout the 72-hole tournament, finishing with a four-under-par 68 to finish two clear of Hungarian Csicsi Rozsa.
England’s Meghan MacLaren has a sensation weekend, equally her compatriot’s final round on Sunday to shoot up the leaderboard into 3rd place. She has already earned her LET card for next year, after a fantastic year in which she finished top of the LET Access Tour Order of Merit.
The world’s No. 1 amateur Leona Maguire has decided not to progress to Final Qualifying despite comfortably qualifying to do so. She’s committed to returning to Duke University to finish her degree, and played in this week’s event in order to earn her card for the lower tier Symetra Tour.
“My team always comes first,” Maguire said. “I've always wanted to get my Duke degree, and I have a plan of what I'm going to do: Come here this week, get Symetra status and then be ready to go in May after graduation.”
Gemma Dryburgh was the only Scot in the field to finish inside the top-80, alongside WPGA Order of Merit winner Lydia Hall from Wales, and England’s Charlotte Thomas, who clung onto the final spot despite a closing 77.
There were a host of Ladies European Tour players who made the grade, including Klara Spilkova, from the Czech Republic, who earned her first win on the Tour earlier this season, Dutch star Anne Van Dam, and Spain’s Nuria Iturrios.
