Congratulations go out to Aree Song who is the medalist of this year's LPGA Tour School.
The 5 -day event was held on the Champions Course at LPGA National. Aree shot rounds of 67-72-71-71-73 for a 354 total. Aree's consistent play on the final day with wind gusts up to 30 MPH was enough to win by 2 over former IMG Academy Leadbetter golf program golfer, Jessica Korda. Jessica trained at the academy from ages 5-16.
Aree also started at the academy at a young age. Her older brother Chan came first and a year later, Aree, Naree (her twin sister)and their parents moved over from Thailand. Aree and Naree were only 10 years old when they arrived at IMG.
Aree continues to work on her game with IMG Academy Leadbetter golf program Director, David Whelan.
Also, former and current IMG golfers gaining status at this year's q-school are Jodie Ewart, Jaclyn Sweeney and Seema Sadekar. They will see some playing time in 2011 based on their finish.
Congrats to all of you!
