Canada’s Jennifer Kirby jumped 22 spots up the LPGA Tour Q-School leaderboard Thursday. The Paris, Ont. native and former Team Canada member fired a 3-under par 69 at LPGA International’s Hill Course to sit tied for 11th thru 36 holes in Daytona Beach, FLA.
Jaye Marie Green continues to hold on to medalist position as she carded a second-round 4-under-par 68 to climb to a five-stroke lead over Vanderbilt graduate Megan Grehan. Green sits at 14-under with three rounds remaining in the event.
Erica Rivard of Tecumseh, Ont. carded an ace – her second of the week – Thursday on the 3rd hole of the Jones course.
The players were split between LPGA International Jones and Hills courses and are repaired by scores for the third round based on the course they started on for the first round. The 153-player field will be cut to the low 70 players and ties after the fourth round on Saturday. A total of 20 exempt spots on the 2014 LPGA Tour are up for grabs this year, while those who place 21st through 45th and ties will receive conditional status.
