I watched Kelly Shon win the SALLY women's amateur event in Florida back in January. She is very good. She did well in the U S Women's Am last month. She has one more year left at Princeton, but may turn pro next June.

I think a lot of players in this field are doing it for the experience, not really expecting to get past the 2nd stage. Lots will get through this stage, but few of them will be able to beat out those who have been beating them on the Symetra Tour this season.... Kelly's one of those with the potential to go far, though, so we'll see!

Shoring up Symetra tour membership would be beneficial for a rising senior as well so she may jump right in upon graduation.

As long as she doesn't get herself LPGA membership like Stephanie Kono did which has lead to a disastorous couple of seasons since forgoing her senior collegiate year.

Kono will be in Stage 2 this year, btw!
