Symetra Tour Championship presented by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
LPGA International, Jones Course
Daytona Beach, Florida
The Symetra Tour, Road to the LPGA, comes to Daytona Beach for the final event of this historic 2017 season. The Symetra Tour Championship starts on Thursday, October 5 and concludes on Sunday October 8.
After 21 events in 14 states around the country, the top 108 rising stars in women’s golf are at LPGA International to vie for a share of the $200,000 purse and the winner’s payout of $30,000. The field includes players from the United States and 23 countries around the globe.
These is the ten players who would earn cards if the season had ended today:
1- Benyapa Niphatsophon $109,736
2- Celine Boutier 108,690
3- Hannah Green 105,054
4- Nanna Koerstz Madsen 87,373
5- Eyrnne Lee 78,128
6- Lydsey Weaver 74,089
7- Anne-Catherine Tanguay 73,309
8- Yu Liu 71,354
9- Katelyn Dambaugh 63,023
10- Emma Talley 61,800
|Nanna Koerstz Madsen won 3 times this year on the Symetra Tour earning her 2017 playing privileges, and full time 2018 playing privileges on the LPGA Tour.|
The battle to get into the top 10 will be as fierce as ever. Everyone in the top 23 still has a mathematical chance to finish inside the top 10. If No. 23 on the money list, Laura Wearn (Charlotte, N.C.), wins the $30,000 she would move to $61,914, which is $114 more than No. 10, Emma Talley (Princeton, Ky.), has currently earned. Talley is $7,639 in front of No. 11 Daniela Darquea (Quito, Ecuador).
This is an incredibly strong field with all the top players fighting for a spot in the top 10 or a chance to skip Stage II of LPGA Qualifying Tournament (top 15 after the top 10 excluding LPGA Tour members). The top 23, all with a fighter’s chance to make the top 10, are in the field. In fact, the top 30 on the Volvik Race for the Card money list are all in the field.
There are also 23 current LPGA members in the field.
WHO’S LOCKED FOR THE LPGAThe Symetra Tour has determined that the top five on the Volvik Race for the Card money list - No. 1 Benyapa Niphatsophon, No. 2 Celine Boutier, No. 3 Hannah Green, No. 4 *Nanna Koerstz Madsen and No. 5 Erynne Lee - have already secured their LPGA Tour cards for 2018. Regardless of what they do this week, they are safe to finish in the top 10.
11-23 HAVE A CHANCE AT A TOUR CARDEvery year, someone from outside the top 10 jumps into the top 10 at the final event. There are 13 players currently outside the top 10 that have a chance to spoil the party for someone inside the top 10.
