The final round of the LPGA and Epson Tour Qualifying Tournament Stage I has ended, and 99 players will be moving on to Stage II.
Those who made the cut after three rounds took on the Dinah Shores Course one last time to decide whether or not they would be heading to Florida for Stage II of the Qualifying Tournament.
Among those making the cut are veterans and first years, but they all have the same goal: making it to Q-Series and playing on the LPGA Tour in 2024.
Japan’s Suzuka Yamaguchi and Canadian amateur Savannah Grewal finished at the top of the leaderboard on 15-under-par.
Just four shots further back in a tie for sixth place was LET member Mim Sangkapong of Thailand, after she shot rounds of 73-73-63-68 to secure her spot in the second stage.
Speaking after her third rounds, Sangkapong said: “It feels very good to shoot that low and kind of unreal to me. My caddie, Phil, he is helping me a lot throughout the course management this week.
“Today, we just kept the momentum going, as we mentioned before the round. I just kept telling myself to stay patient all day, just do what I could do, and let things fall where they way. Tomorrow is a new day, a new chance for me. Same thing as we planned in the past three days; just be patient, and good things will come to you.”
France’s Charlotte Liautier safely made it through to the second stage in a tie for 14th place on eight-under-par.
While fellow countrywoman Anais Meyssonnier is also through to the next stage after finishing in a tie for 26th place.
Indian duo Pranavi Urs and Sneha Singh finished T38 to progress, while Belgium’s Leslie Cloots, Alexandra Swayne of the U.S. Virgin Islands and India’s Sharmila Nicollet all made it in T89.
