Chin Garrett lead LPGA Q-school


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Jane Chin shot a 7-under 65 in windy conditions Thursday for a share of the second-round lead with Australia’s Nikki Garrett in the 90-hole LPGA qualifying tournament.

Chin matched Garrett (71) at 6-under 138 at LPGA International. Chin played the Champions Course, and Garrett played the Legends Course.

“Yesterday, I was pretty nervous the first few holes and then it kind of all sunk in,” Chin said. “Then, I’m just thinking that it’s a regular tournament. That’s what I’m trying to keep in my head at least.”

The top 20 finishers will earn Priority List Category 11. In the event of a tie, a playoff will decide the 20th position. Players finishing 21st through 30th will earn Priority List Category 16, and Nos. 31-40 will receive Priority List Category 20.
