PostSubject: LPGA Q-School Shocking Resuts!   Tue Dec 04, 2012 3:45 am

The LPGA completed its schedule a couple of weeks back, but its most important event took place this past weekend. There was not a lot of coverage, that seems to be reserved for the men, but if your an LPGA fan this was a most interesting weekend.

There were 124 players that teed it up for this 90 hole event. They would cut the field after the 72nd hole to the top 70 players and ties. There were players entered from all over the world. Players from the LET, JLPGA. KLPGA and the Symetra Tour. Players trying to earn their card for the first time. Players trying to win back their card after losing it this past year because of poor play. Too put it simply, players livelihoods were at stake.

This field of of 124 players, were all fighting it out to finish in the top 20. You might have read that the top 45 players would receive LPGA cards. That is quite misleading. If you finish in the top 20 you receive Category 12 Priority Status. That means that you have earned full time playing privileges in 2013. If you finish in the number 21-45 spots you receive Category 18 Priority Status. That means you actually have an LPGA card, but the chances of you ever getting into an event are slim and none. If you happen to get into an event and play well, you can improve your status during one of the two LPGA reshuffles next year. The problem is it is hard to improve your status if you don't get to tee it up.

Now more about those 20 ladies who did earn their full time privileges.

at the top is Moriya Jutanugarn and she is 18.

her younger sister Ariya has achieve more but is too young at 17 to join the tour. so she will be in LET Q-school instead (as they have a different criteria).

it will be great to see more Asians on tour who can win.
