Aditi stays in race for LPGA full card

Daytona Beach (US): Indian golfer Aditi Ashok shot one-under 71 in the fourth round of the LPGA Qualifying School Final stage here to keep her chances alive of making a full card for the 2017 season.

Aditi occupied Tied-23rd and only Top-20 make the full card with next 25 getting limited status.

The 18-year-old is now three-under for four rounds. She has shot 73-70-71-71.

Aditi had three birdies against four bogeys in the fourth round. Between 14th and 17th, she traded two birdies with two bogeys and ended the day at 71.

Meanwhile, American Jaye Marie Green continued her stellar play with a 2-under-70 on the Hills course on Saturday to grab the 72-hole lead at 15-under, 273.

With one round left, she is two-shots clear of Olafia Kristinsdottir (Iceland), who carded a 68 on the Jones course to get to 13-under.

Sadena Parks (US) was in third place at 12-under, 276.

There are four players tied for 19th at 4-under, 284.

Kristinsdottir is inching closer and closer to becoming the first player from Iceland to play the LPGA.

The 72-hole cut was made at 2-over, 290 and exactly 70 players will tee it up in the final-round.

Players that finish in the top 20 (no ties) will earn LPGA Tour membership in category 12 while those that finish 21-45 (including ties) will earn membership in category 17.

If necessary, there will be a playoff for the final spots in category 12 (full membership) only.
