cardwell in q-school

Former Kokomo and Iowa Hawkeye golfer Kristi Cardwell advanced through the first stage of the LPGA Tour Qualifying School several weeks ago at the Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The top 100 players from this first stage advanced to the second stage.

Cardwell stood in 90th place after her first three rounds, but came through in the clutch with a two-under-par round of 70 to make it all the way up to a tie for 35th. Her previous rounds were 74, 76 and 73. Other notable participants were Cheyenne Woods and Madison Pressel. Woods, the daughter of Tiger Woods’ half-brother, finished the stage in second place with a nine-under-par score of 279. Pressel, the younger sister of LPGA Tour player Morgan Pressel, also made it to the second stage. She finished in a tie for 58th place.

Stage two of Q-school will be played Oct. 8-11 at the Plantation Golf and Country Club in Venice, Fla. The final stage will be contested over five rounds Dec. 4-8 in Daytona Beach. Top finishers in the final stage will earn 2014 LPGA membership and all others who make the cut will receive Symetra Tour status.

Good luck Kristi!

Until next time, have more fun playing more golf!

Behind an improved offense and new-look defense, the Kats rolled to a surprising 55-7 victory over a team that was 9-3 last season.
