3 IJGT Alumni Earn their LPGA Tour card

Twenty players earned their 2016 LPGA Tour card this past weekend at  the Final Stage of LPGA Qualifying Tournament. The tournament was held at LPGA International (on the Jones and Hills Courses) in Daytona Beach, Florida. Three of the twenty players who earned their cards are IJGT Alumni, including Simin Feng, who claimed medalist honors by winning the event. The two other IJGT Alumni to earn their LPGA Tour cards were Maude-Aimee LeBlanc (T4) and Cheyenne Woods (T13).

Simin Feng shot 18-under for the tournament to win by an impressive 7 stokes.  She was the wire-to-wire winner of the event. Her score is tied for the third lowest since 2004, when the LPGA went to a 5 year Qualifying tournament.
