Sizable local contingent advances in first stage of LPGA Q School

ADVERTISEMENT

Not only is Edmond’s Doug Tewell suddenly an internationally-recognized golf instructor thanks to his series of lessons flying off the virtual shelves on Google, he is developing quite a reputation for helping our local talent as well.

One of Tewell’s proteges is Taylor Neidy of Clinton, who recently completed her college career at the University of Central Oklahoma. Neidy recently shot rounds of 73-73-72-76 to finish tied for 54th in the first stage of LPGA Qualifying School held at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The top 100 in the 280-plus player field move on to Stage II at Plantation Golf & Country Club in Venice, Fla., on Sept. 30-Oct. 4.

Neidy credits her Tewell for helping her prepare for the mental and physical challenges of qualifying school.

"Doug and Pat Bates (UCO men’s coach) have worked on my swing a lot and Doug has also helped me a lot mentally. He’s made me more mentally tough. Before if I got to 2-under through five holes, I would be thinking about protecting that. He wants me to figure out how to get to 3-under and then lower. He wants me to stay after it and be aggressive."

Neidy will be joined in Florida by other players with Oklahoma ties who made it through the first stage.

Alexandra Stewart of Oklahoma City, the 2012 Women’s Oklahoma Golf Association Stroke Play champion, tied for 11th at 2-under, and Anne-Catherine Tanguay, who completed her eligibility at the University of Oklahoma this spring, tied for 17th at even par.

Also, former Sooners Emily Collins and Chirapat Jao-Javanil advanced by finishing tied for 26th and 49th, respectively.. Former University of Tulsa golfer Kristina Merkle shot 72 in the final round to move up to a tie for 67th, while Tulsan Amber Hensley came up with a final-round 73 and was safely in at 9-over, tied for 78th.


 Two who made it in on the number were former Cowgirls Jayde Panos and Julie Yang, who were in the final group in at 10-over.
