Neidy shoots 74 in first round of Stage II LPGA qualifying

VENICE, Fla., September 30, 2014 – Brogan McKinnon (Mississauga, Ontario) is not your average professional golfer. She has several visible tattoos including one that extends up her forearm, she was homeschooled, she is Buddhist and she loves to skimboard.  On Tuesday in Stage II of the LPGA Qualifying Tournament at Plantation Golf and Country Club, McKinnon proved she isn’t average on the golf course either by firing a 6-under 66 to hold the 18-hole lead by three strokes.

"I putted well, putting was the big difference," said McKinnon, who played in seven Symetra Tour events and one LPGA Tour event (Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic) in 2014.  "I didn’t really miss any that I should have made."

The top 80 players will advance to the final stage of qualifying school.

Former OU players Chirapat Jao-Javanil and Anne-Catherine Tanguay are tied for 28th after opening with even-par 72s. Taylor Neidy from Clinton shot 74 and is tied for 68th along with former Sooner Emily Collins.

Shooting 75 and tied for 98th were Alexandra Stewart of Oklahoma City and Amber Hensley of Tulsa. Former Oklahoma State Cowgirls Jayde Panos (77, tied for 141st) and Julie Yang (78, tied for 158th) have ground to make up.
