Jaye Marie Green claimed medalist honors at the LPGA's 2016 final-stage qualifying tournament, beating runner-up Olafia Kristinsdottir by one stroke.
And guess what: This is the second time Green has won Q-School. She was also medalist at the final stage in 2013, and she is the first golfer in all the years the event has been played in Daytona Beach, Fla. (since 1991) to win it twice.
Jaye, still only 22 years old, turned pro at age 19 and her rookie LPGA season was in 2014. She has three career Top 10 finishes thus far and nearly half a million in career earnings.
In the just-completed 2016 season, Green finished 112th on the money list. She didn't have to play Q-School, but doing so - and especially winning - improves her status for 2017 and guarantees her a full season. Don't be surprised if Jaye makes a leap in 2017.
