Lexi Thompson Will Be on the LPGA in 2012, But Who from Q-School May Not Join Her?

I'm really pleased that Mike Whan granted Lexi Thompson's petition to join the LPGA in 2012, but I'm really worried about some of the other big names who will see their hopes of joining (or rejoining) the LPGA end today if they fail to make the top 70 in the final round of the 2nd stage of LPGA Q-School.  Right now there are 73 players at +4 or better, with the leaders out on the Bobcat course as I write.  Some big names who have already finished their rounds need that cut line to stay where it is or move higher, including:

T60/+3 Briana Vega
T66/+4 Kristie Smith
T74/+5 Brianna Do
T80/+6 Carlota Ciganda, Kendall Dye, Esther Choe
T103/+8 Meghan McChrystal
T115/+9 Katie Kempter, Joy Trotter, Maiya Tanaka

As for those on the course now, the following players have to be very careful:

E Natalie Sheary
+1 Cydney Clanton, Izzy Beisiegel, Blair O'Neal
+2 Danielle Kang
+4 Joanna Coe

Can't wait to find out how they do!
