Last week, IMG Academy golf program pupils Ginger Howard, Victoria Tanco, and Doris Chen completed the first stage of the LPGA Qualifying Tournament at Daytona Beach.
Playing as a professional, Ginger Howard shot an impressive 70-67-68-72 , totaling 277. Coming in at -11, Howard placed T4 with Emma De Groot of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Victoria Tanco and Doris Chen competed as amateurs, but their playing was nothing of the sort. Tanco finished 16th, shooting 4 under par with individual rounds of 70-71-71-72. Coming in at 29th, Chen finished one above par, shooting 68-73-76-72.
All three ladies advanced to the second stage of the LPGA Qualifying tour which will take place in Venice, FL in September.
