Futures Tour Q-School
Play has wrapped up at the Futures Tour qualifying tournament, and some good names are among those who emerged with exempt or provisional status. Forty to 50 golfers get exempt status through this tournament, although the final reckoning of everyone's status doesn't take place until after the completion of the LPGA's final stage Q-School qualifier later this month.
The winner was Korean In-Kyung Kim, who won the USGA Girls Junior Am last year. Runner-up was Paige Mackenzie (that's her pictured above), a Curtis Cupper and University of Washington product. Auburn's Maru Martinez, runner-up to Morgan Pressel at the '05 U.S. Women's Amateur, came eighth.
Perry Swenson, the University of Texas grad pictured below, was tied for 13th, along with USC's Irene Cho, among others.
Amanda McCurdy tied for 25th. Hawaiian Shayna Miyajima (pictured below) was tied for 30th.
Cactus Tour player Nicole Keller, below, was tied at 34, and "Big Break V" contestant Julie Wells tied at 45.
