Marianne Skarpnord is currently in Daytona Beach, Fla., attempting to earn her LPGA Tour card for 2010. If successful, she'll join Suzanne Pettersen in representing Norway on the LPGA. And Marianne is in pretty position after a second-round 66 today, which moved her into the Top 10. There are three rounds to go as this is written.
The 2009 season was real breakout year for Marianne. Playing on the Ladies European Tour, she posted two victories, two thirds and a fourth-place finish, plus four other Top 10 finishes, and is fourth on the LET money list.
