LPGA Q-School Sunday, Round 4: Long Day

Even with many of LPGA Q-School's 2nd-round leaders coming back to the field in Sunday morning's surprisingly tough conditions, at least they were able to put the tougher Legends course behind them and try to take advantage of the more forgiving Champions course. Conversely, the few players who handled the Champions course well in the morning and made up serious ground on the leaders would have to carry their good play over to the Legends course in a 36-hole day. How did they all handle the conditions, the pressure, and fatigue yesterday afternoon?

1st/-6 Marianne Skarpnord (76L-66C-70L-70C)
T2/-5 Amanda Blumenherst (72L-71C-73L-67C), Nicole Jeray (70C-70L-76L-67C)

There's still very little space between top 20 and nothing:

T25/+2 Gwladys Nocera (68C-74L-79L-69C), Diana D'Alessio (73L-72C-76L-69C), Nanette Hill (73C-78L-70C-69L), Izzy Beisiegel (74C-76L-67C-73L)

Lots of players I didn't expect to be outside the top 40 are:

T44/+5 Nontaya Srisawang (72L-74C-82L-65C), Jeehae Lee (74L-71C-78L-70C), Virada Nirapathpongporn (74L-71C-77L-71C), Lisa Strom (71C-75L-74L-73C), Kris Tschetter (77L-72C-69C-75L)

Quite a bounceback by Srisawang--from one of the worst scores in the morning to the best score in the afternoon!

Only a few unexpected missed 72-hole cuts:

+14 Sofie Andersson (77C-72L-76C-77L)
+15 Stephanie Na (72L-77C-77C-77L
+16 Hannah Jun (82L-73C-76C-73L), Sophia Sheridan (77C-72L-76C-79L)
+28 Maru Martinez (79C-79L-77C-81L)

The final results may surprise you. Coming right up with them!
