She has 27 donors so far, and is doing her part in return: 72-72-70 ... should have no problem advancing to Stage Two.
About 200 players were kicked to the curb after Round Three, including:
Emma Jandel (72-74-78) - She has been around forever ... the Symetra site says she is 33, hasn't played on that tour since August 2020.
Noelle Maertz(a) (81-77-76) - Husky NJ career amateur who I first saw at a 2012 USWO qualifier and most recently at a 2021 USWO qualifier ... does she want to work the Seaview Pines course pro-am one day? That's as far as she will ever get.
Holly Clyburn (76-75-79) - Didn't she used to be a good player at one time?
Julie Hovland(a) (74-75-76) - No mention of Viktor Hovland in her bio at the U. of South Alabama website, so I guess they are not related.
Sharmila (76-77-73) - You'll still be needed at the Galloway pro-am.
Erynne Lee (72-76-73) - At 28, she's not over the hill ... yet. Scooped up $2,344 in eight Symetra starts this year.
The clutch par improved Pano to 89th place – the top 95 and ties advance – so she advances, bottom line. No different if you’re 89th or ninth.
But her celebration was muted because Pano revealed she recently received a letter from new LPGA Tour commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan informing her she had been denied an exemption that would have allowed her to play in Stage III of Q-School – where you earn your card – until she’s 18.
