Libby Smith Has LPGA Conditional Status

Libby Smith has completed the grueling rain-delayed five-round LPGA Qualifying School at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Florida.  Libby finished tied for 30th and has achieved conditional status for the 2010 LPGA season.  This status will allow her to compete in a few LPGA events and will also give her the opportunity to compete in the Monday qualifiers.

Libby opened the tournament with a 76 and then spent the next four rounds working hard to make up the lost ground.  Her remaining four rounds were 71-72-71-72 for a total of 362, just two two strokes short of the top 20 which would have given her full exempt status.

Libby finished tied for 24th in the 2009 Futures Tour which gives her full exempt status for that tour and she will compete on both tours for the 2010 season.  She will be in need of all the financial support that we can give her for what will be an exciting and costly 2010 season.
