News Flash: Julieta Granada Pursuing Plan B

Julieta Granada is one of the early leaders in the Ladies European Tour's Q-School. Looks like she took a long hard look at the LPGA and LET schedules and realized she could probably win enough on the LET on a limited schedule to have somewhere to play professionally in 2010, just in case her 2-year slump on the LPGA continues in 2009 (even though she can still get into most any tournament she wants this season on the LPGA).

[Update 1 (1/8/09, 1:07 am): The scoreboard is still down, but 1 of the players within 1 of Granada is LPGA rookie Anna Nordqvist, who looks to be aiming at the Amy Yang route to greatness on the LPGA (as a result of only having Category 16 status there this upcoming season.]

[Update 2 (1:26 am): The field list is working, though, and already there are 2 strange WDs: the LPGA class of '08's Hwanhee Lee and NCAA sensation/'08 LPGA Q-School disappointment Dewi Claire Schreefel.]

[Update 3 (1/9/09, 8:45 pm): Here's the leaderboard. Granada and Nordqvist are 2 of only 4 players under par with 1 round left to play.]

[Update 4 (1/10/09, 7:10 pm): Granada and Nordqvist tied for 2nd at -10 in the 1st stage of the LET Q-School. Now they have to finish in the top 30 in the final stage next week to get priority status and in the top 50 to be LET members. Shouldn't be too tough for them.]
