Four Australians and 1 New Zealander have advanced to the fifth and final round of the Ladies European Tour School being played in Marrakech in Morocco.
ACT’s Nikki Campbell leads the way, the two-time winner on the LPGA of Japan maintained her fifth position with another solid round of three-under-par 69 to sit at 13-under-par.
South Australian Sarah King has continued her solid form with a round of 71 to be at 11-under-par and tied for seventh position, while West Australian Whitney Hillier moved up into a share of 11th a further shot back, after posting a 69 herself during the all-important fourth round.
Victorian Breanna Elliott was the final Australian to advance; she is at two-under-par and tied for 46th position. New Zealand’s Cathryn Bristow also got through; she sits at two-under-par as well.
The cut was made at one-under-par, with 66 players advancing to the final round. The players will take on the Al Maaden course in Monday’s fifth and final round to determine who will finish inside the top 30 places plus ties that earn category 8a status for the 2013 Ladies European Tour.
Unfortunately for Tasmanian Ashlee Dewhurst and New Zealand’s Emily Perry they both missed out by one finishing at even-par. The news wasn’t good either for Queenslanders Tamara Johns and Katelyn Must, or New South Wales pair of Corie Hou and Sunny Park, they all finished well outside the top 60.
After rounds of 68, 70, 64 and 65, Thailand’s Ariya Jutanugarn sits atop of the leaderboard at 21-under-par and is superbly placed to earn her tour card.
