LOS ANGELES - Former UCLA golfers Tiffany Joh, Sydnee Michaels, Hannah Jun and Ryann O'Toole all competed in the LPGA Qualifying School Finals at the Champions and Legends Course in Daytona Beach, Florida in an attempt to earn their LPGA tour cards for 2011.
Joh shot a 364 (+4) in the 5-round tournament to finish tied for 22nd place, while Michaels shot 374 (+14) and Jun shot 377 (+17), good for ties for 68th and 71st place respectively. Ryann O'Toole missed the cut shooting a 72-hole score of 305 (+17), which was eight strokes over the cut line.
By finishing 22nd, Joh earned Category 16 status on the LPGA, which allows her to have access to LPGA Monday Qualifying tournaments and possible entry into full-field events. Joh just missed earning full exempt status on the LPGA Tour for next year by two strokes.
Sydnee Michaels and Hannah Jun both earned conditional status with their results, though Jun already has full exempt status on the Ladies European Tour. Despite missing the cut, Ryann O'Toole also has conditional status on the LPGA in 2011 based on her results from the Futures Tour in 2010.
