STEPHANIE MEADOW RETAINS LPGA TOUR CARD AT VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA CLASSIC
Meadow, 27, birdied her final two holes at the tournament in Texas to secure her playing privileges for next season.
That included a 25-foot putt on the last that meant the Jordanstown native finished in a tie for sixth, eight shots behind winner Cheyenne Knight.
Meadow, needing to finish in the top 100, was 99th on the money list.
Having made a fast start to the week with an opening round of 63, Meadow faded slightly following rounds of 71 and 73.
She started Sunday with back-to-back birdies and, though a bogey at the fifth temporarily halted her momentum, further birdies at the ninth and 13th put her in a strong position.
Although her eagle putt on the 17th slid by, she made birdie and backed it up with another on the final hole to card a four-under 67 to finish on 10 under par.
Meadow punched the air in delight as her birdie putt on the 18th dropped into the hole.
Knight shot a five-under-par 66 on the last day to clinch her first LPGA Tour event on 18 under.
England’s Georgia Hall also shot a final round of 66 to finish in a tie for fourth.
ICYMI – NS PRO 950 NEO NOW AVAILABLE
Nippon have announced their new addition to the tour-winning NS PRO line, the 950 NEO. With the same light feeling as the 950GH steel shafts, the 950 NEO has been created to cater for larger iron head designs with strong lofts and lower center of gravities (CG) that have grown in popularity over the last 20 years. While inheriting the superb handling and directional accuracy of the 950GH , NEO better matches today’s iron heads with rigidity characteristics refined by patented processes from Nippon’s NS Pro Modus 3 line: Multi Heat Treatment Technology (MHT) and Multi Shape Adjustment Technology (MSA).
• An extension of the world’s first sub-100g constant weight steel iron shafts, the best-selling and most successful lightweight steel iron shafts in tour history, the NS Pro 950GH
• A slightly firmer tip section: 1° to 2° higher launch for mid/high trajectory
• Firmer mid section: stabilizes newer clubheads throughout the swing
• Softer grip section: smaller .600″ diameter (from .610″) enhances “NS” feel
The 950 Neo is in stock and available to order now from Diamond Golf
