Alison Muirhead attending delayed LPGA Q School – Gulf News

Tournament, postponed due to Hurricane Ian, to be held from November 17-20
Dubai-based Alison Muirhead is now planning to compete in the LPGA Stage II Q-School. Originally planned to be staged October 18-21 at Plantation Golf Club, Florida, the tournament had to be postponed due to Hurricane Ian and will now be held at the same venue from November 17-20 with practice rounds on November 15-16.
The Scot advanced from Stage I LPGA Q-School in August in California with rounds of 69, 72, 70 and 73, 284, four under par with a tied 45th finish.
Alison told Gulf News, ”I am going early to acclimatise for the Q-School Stage II in Florida. I have entered the PXG Women’s Match Play Championship to be held from November 1-6, being played at World Golf Village, St Augustine, Florida.”
The tournament has a $55,000 minimum purse and a $15,000 winner’s cheque. The format is two days of strokeplay, with the field then cut to 64 players who play the Pod Play Battle Rounds, with 16 players then qualifying for the woman match play knockout.
A minimum of the top 30 and ties will qualify from Stage II Q-School and go forward to Stage III Q-School.
Stage III of Q-School is being held November 28 — December 4 over eight rounds of golf, 144 holes at the Magnolia Grove Golf Course, Mobile, Al Crossing and Falls golf courses.
The top 20 players and ties from Stage III earn Category 14 LPGA status, players finishing in positions 21-45 and ties earn LPGA status in Category 15 and Epson Tour status in Category C.
Finally, players who finish outside the top 45 and ties, who complete all rounds before the cut, will earn Epson Tour status.
“If I am successful in Stage II, I am planning to stay in the US until Stage III,” concluded Alison.
