Gemma makes it to final

By October 26, 2017Gemma Dryburgh News

Aberdeen’s Gemma Dryburgh, by finishing joint 15th in a big field at the LPGA Tour Q School Stage 2 event at Venice, Florida on Sunday, was the only Scot to gain a place at the LPGA Qualifying School’s Final Stage next month. Former Curtis Cup player Dryburgh had rounds of 74, 72, 70 and 69 for 285 – nine shots behind the winner, England’s Georgia Hall (71-68-69-68 for 12-under 276).

Michele Thomson from Ellon failed by one stroke to make the top 80 and ties who will advance to the Final Stage. After dismal rounds of 74, 78 and 76, the former Scottish champion and Curtis Cup player hit peak form with a final-round 68 for 296. She had four double bogeys in her second round.
Vikki Laing from Edinburgh had scores of 74, 71, 79 and 78 for 302. Glasgow’s Kylie Henry totalled 305 with rounds of 76, 74, 77 and 78. She finished a shot ahead of Comrie’s Carly Booth who scored 75, 75, 77 and 79 for 306.
Duke University final-year student Leona Maguire from Ireland tied for ninth on 281 (70-69-70-72) but won’t take up her place at the Final Stage.
Maguire, the world’s No. 1 amateur, said she’s committed to returning to Duke to finis her collegiate career but will turn pro next summer and take advantage of the Symetra Tour status she earned this week at Q-School’s second stage.
“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.”
