    Popov Remains Top 10 At LPGA Qualifying School Final Stage

    Dec. 6, 2014


    Recent graduate Sophia Popov continued her strong showing during the final stage of the LPGA Qualifying School and is tied for ninth after the fourth of five rounds on Saturday (Dec. 6) at the LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla.

    Popov is tied for ninth at 8-under 280 (70-67-72-71), three off of third, three ahead of five-way tie for 20th. The top 20 finishers earn status through category 12 on the tour, essentially a full-time card. The next 25 finishers earn partial status. Popov was even through nine and 1-under on the back.

    Former Trojans Paola Moreno and Veronica Felibert are still in the hunt for a top 45 finish, tied for 58th at 1-over 289.

    Fellow former Trojan Lisa McCloskey and current junior Annie Park did not make the final round cut, which was 2-over. Park finished at 6-over 294 (75-76-73-70) over four rounds, tied for 90th. McCloskey tied for 123rd at 11-over 299 (74-77-77-71).
