LET Q-School Dominated by Caroline Hedwall
Caroline Hedwall closed with a fantastic 65 in LET Q-School today to secure medalist honors at -15 after beating runner-up Jaclyn Sweeney by 9 shots and Belen Mozo by 11. Mikaela Parmlid and Sara Brown got top 10s, Nontaya Srisawang and Clare Queen top 20s, and Garrett Phillip secured full status on the LET despite shooting a 77 (she ended up T25 and was the 29th qualifier, so she managed to avoid the sudden-death playoff for the final spot). Carly Booth missed full status by a couple of shots and Johanna Lundberg and Kiran Matharu by a few, but they did make the top 50 and will get into a good number of events in 2011. One final note, from the LET web site: "Klara Spilkova from the Czech Republic, who turned 16 on the first day of the tournament, finished in a tie for ninth place and will decide over the Christmas holiday whether or not she will turn professional." Very interesting!
