Beisiegel beat 15 men and tied two others on an uncharacteristically cold, windy and rainy day in the desert near Palm Springs. Only one player was able to break par-72 on the 7,156-yard Greg Norman Course at PGA West.
It was fun, said Beisiegel, who is trying to become the first woman to earn a spot on the mens tour. A day like today, you think, man, in a couple of years I might be at the British Open and have the exact same conditions.
The 25-year-old Canadian made $120,586 on the LPGA Tour this year, earning a full exemption for next season.
Her 164 total is seventh-highest among 84 golfers trying to earn one of 23 berths into sectional qualifying.
It was better. I felt more comfortable today, Beisiegel said of her second round. Ive hit 28 of 28 fairways, so I was pumped on the last hole for my 100 percent stat.
The tournament continues through Friday with no cut in the field.
