Esther Choe Leads Largest Pack Ever from Symetra Tour to LPGA for 2013
Esther Choe, having finished the 2012 Symetra Tour season atop their money list in 2012, earned Player of the Year honors and led 9 other players to full status on the LPGA for 2013, among them Rookie of the Year Mi Hyang Lee. Paola Moreno, who played twice as many events as Choe, finished 2nd, a little less than $5K behind Choe. Daniela Iacobelli used a final-round 68 to propel her to her 1st-ever victory in the final event of the year and jump from 22nd place on the money list to 5th, right behind Victoria Elizabeth and Thidapa Suwannapura. Rounding out the top 10 were Jenny Gleason, Julia Boland, Nicole Smith, and Sara-Maude Juneau. Congratulations to them all for earning their 2013 LPGA cards, and apologies for the late notice!
