Former Hoo Lauren Coughlin in Contention for LPGA Tour Card

Dec. 2, 2017

Daytona Beach, Fla. - Former Virginia women’s golfer Lauren Coughlin (Chesapeake, Va.) has advanced to the final round of qualifying for the 2018 LPGA Tour in Daytona Beach, Fla. Coughlin shot 6-under 66 during Saturday’s fourth round of play at LPGA International to make the tournament’s 72-hole cut. The final round of the five-day event takes place Sunday.

The top 20 finishers will receive their LPGA playing cards. Those who finish in places 21-45, and players tied for 45th, earn conditional LPGA status for 2018.

Coughlin opened the tournament by shooting 6-over 78 and then rebounded with rounds of 69, 72 and 66.

The tournament started with a field of 166 players. Former Cavaliers Briana Mao, Elizabeth Szokol and Portland Rosen failed to advance to the final round.

Coughlin won the ACC individual title as a senior in 2016. That season she earned second-team All-America honors.
