Stephanie Meadow continued her great start to the Symetra Tour season as she fired a seven-under-par 64 to grab a share of 8th spot at the Valley Forge Invitational in Pennsylvania.
Meadow, who already has one win to her name this season as she chases an immediate return to LPGA Tour company, looked every inch that class as she carded an incredible nine birdies en route to her 10-under total.
The result sees the Jordanstown star move into 5th place in the Volvik Race for the Card rankings having earned $26,658 after six events this year, with the top-10 earning their main Tour privileges for next season.
Having got off to a slow start over the first two days, Meadow was delighted to catch fire during her final round as she continues to push her way towards achieving her goals.
“It’s great momentum for the rest of the year because I didn’t put it together the first two days, but I did the last,” Meadow said. “I’m happy to move up one place and will now get some rest to be rejuvenated for the June stretch.”
Even with her great play yesterday however, there was no catching Swede Louise Ridderstrom who stormed to victory by four shots on 16-under-par.
Ridderstrom returned a competitive course record 63 in the final round, just one better than Meadow, to earn her win in style at Raven’s Claw Golf Club.
