Collegians wrap up Futures Tour Q school

November 05, 2010

Competitors at this week's Futures Tour Qualifying School won't know until after the conclusion of LPGA Q school just how many people earned full Futures Tour cards yesterday after the final round of play at Lake Region Yacht & Club in Winter Haven, Fla., but a handful of collegians look like they've secured a potential place to play come next summer after the end of the 2010-11 college season.

That's certainly the case for Wake Forest senior Natalie Sheary, who shot a final-round 70 to secure medalist honors with a nine-under 279, four strokes better than Jackie Barenborg.

"There's a bunch of college players out here this week, plus two of my current teammates at Wake [Michelle Shin and Allie Bodemann], so I felt really comfortable," said Sheary, (right) a religion major, who wrote a college paper this week on Islam and was studying for a Monday test on Buddhism.

Here is a look at how some other college player fared this past week in Winter Haven. Biggest surprise might have been Megan McChrystal, who has a 66.5 final round stroke average for LSU this fall but shot a final-round 77 in windy conditions Friday.
