Top 20 earn tour cards at LPGA Q-School. Jaye Marie Green set scoring record

Symetra Tour rookie Jaye Marie Green completed a wire-to-wire victory at the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament on Sunday to earn medalist honors and earn LPGA Tour status for the 2014 season. The 19-year-old finished the five-day, 90-hole event at 29-under-par 331 with a 10 shot victory over South Korean Mi Rim Lee.

Green set the record for the lowest score at the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament since it moved to a 90-hole event in 2004. Eight-time LPGA Tour winner Stacy Lewis set the previous record in 2008 when she posted an 18-under 342.

“This is going to be a week that I’ll always remember,” said Green. “I was the most nervous on that last green when I didn’t have to be but I really was. But when that putt fell I was just speechless and I think I was just seeing stars really. It was a cool feeling. I just felt really relieved.”
