Smriti Mehra - LPGA/Futures Tour

Postby BSharma » Sat Jun 25, 2005 9:49 pm

Smriti is +2 after 12 holes in the second round and is -1 for the tournament. How did she lose all these strokes?

Nisha Sadekar is at even par after 9 holes.

There is a shortage of volunteers at the golf tournament and the scores are being updated after the golfers play 9 holes (except for the leaders).

Smriti Mehra had a very good 3rd round with a 2 under 70 pushing her up to tied 13th.
With 15 & ties getting the card, she is in a very good position with 2 more rounds to go. The next 35 get conditional LPGA card too  :wink:. Good luck Smriti for the weekend.

Smriti Mehra had rounds of 73-72-70-75-73 at the LPGA Qualifying tournament and failed to finish in the top 15 and lost a chance to win the unconditional card.  She did manage to earn a conditional Tour card for 2007.

Good luck, Smriti.

i have to give smriti credit for hanging tough.  To battle your way, making no money on the futures tour, going to qschool, doing well enough to get conditional status -- all that says to me that this girl has got guts and heart.  I take back all my negative comments about this girl !!!  Good luck to Smriti in the future!!!

Good news from the Indian golf front.  Smriti Mehra battled her way to earn a right to play on the 2008 LPGA Tour.  :clap: :dance: :goodluck:

Smriti Mehra came up with the third best score of the day - a round of 68 - to finish one under par 359 in a five round final qualifier.  Her scores of 73-74-72-72-68 = 359 was good enough to earn her a conditional card for 2008 by finishing tied for 24th place.  The top 17 players won the Tour card for 2008 and the next 36 players got the conditional card.
