LPGA/JLPGA Q-School Stage 1 Update

Standing out among the new crop of mostly 19-to-22-year-old Japanese amateurs trying to join the JLPGA in 2015 via Stage I of their Q-School are some pretty huge names.  The LPGA's Jee Young Lee and (Jelly is playing in Portland, so it's someone else with her name!) Mitsuki Katahira, the KLPGA's Ha Neul Kim, Min Sun Kim, and Hee Kyung Bae, and the LET's Connie Chen all advanced to Stage II in early November.

Over at Mission Hills for Stage I of LPGA Q-School, Emily Tubert (68-71-67) holds a slim lead on SooBin Kim (71-70-66), with Scooby Liu, Annie Park, and Alison Lee among several others in contention for medalist honors.  Doris Chen WDed and Song-Hee Kim following up yesterday's 72 with an 81 today, but most of the bigger names in the field still have a chance to move on after tomorrow's final round.

Stay tuned!
