Former USF golfer Kelly Lagedrost earned a spot in LPGA events during the 2004 season after shooting a two-under par 286 in a tour-qualifying tournament in Daytona this weekend.
Lagedrost earned non-exempt conditional status for next year, meaning she is eligible to enter the qualifying rounds of some LGPA events. The qualifying tournament’s top 28 finishers earned exempt status, meaning they will have full membership next season, with 43 walking away with non-exempt status. Lagedrost competed in the event last year, failing to make the cut in the final round.
Lagedrost graduated from USF in 2001. She was a four-time USF women’s athlete of the year and earned NCAA academic All-American status. For the past year, she has been playing on the Next Generation Women’s Tour, an LPGA developmental tour. She won four of the tour’s first five events this season, winning a total of $6,000 in four victories.

There were stretches where we played […]
