Jun Earns Top Honors In Duramed FUTURES Tour Qualifier

Nov. 7, 2008

Former UCLA All-American Hannah Jun won the Duramed FUTURES Tour's 72-hole qualifier Friday at Cleveland Heights Golf Course in Lakeland, Fla. She finished with a four-day score of 12-under-par 276 after carding rounds of 69-67-68-72.

Jun edged amateur Pernilla Lindberg of Bollnas, Sweden, who finished one stroke back at 11-under-par 277. Jun and Lindberg headed into Friday's round tied for the lead at 12-under-par 204 through 54 holes.

UCLA senior Ryann O'Toole posted scores of 77-72-71-72--292 (+4) and tied for 32nd place.

The 94 players who made the 54-hole cut will receive exempt or non-exempt status for the 2009 Duramed FUTURES Tour season. The number of exempt players will be determined following the final stage of LPGA Qualifying School in early December.

Jun made two birdies and two bogeys in her final round, but it was enough to claim her first tournament win since the Canadian PGA Women's Championship in August.

"I made a lot of pars today, but I just didn't hit the ball close enough for birdies," Jun said. "I didn't really know how I was standing during the day, so it was easy to not think about it and just play my game."

Jun will use her momentum for the final stage of LPGA Qualifying School next month. She tied for 25th last year at the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament to earn non-exempt status for the 2008 season.

"I learned I was a lot more patient as a player than I thought because I didn't get off to a great start," Jun said. "I felt like things could have gone really bad, but they didn't."
