Futures Tour Q-School Starts Tomorrow!
Check out who's entered the Futures Tour Q-School! Virada Nirapathpongporn, Azahara Munoz, Mariajo Uribe, Tiffany Joh, and Mallory Blackwelder are among the headliners profiled by Lisa Mickey on both the LPGA and FT sites. But there are so many players entered, they're doing shotgun starts at 8 am tomorrow over 4 courses--in foursomes! I'll be curious to see how Japanese players Yukiko Ishizaka (Kanagawa), Eri Miyake (Hiroshima), and Woori Shin (Nagoya), as well as Japanese-Americans Elena Kurokawa (Redondo Beach, CA), Mariko Makabe (Irvine, CA), Kelly Nakashima (Maui, HI), and Maiya Tanaka (San Diego, CA) do. But I'll be rooting for Cindy Miller of Silver Creek, NY--I've taught one of her sons!! She's not the only NYer in the field: Nannette Hill (Pelham) and amateur Jillian Fraccola (Manlius) will also be getting good vibes from Mostly Harmless.
