Montreal’s Isabelle Beisiegel became the first woman to achieve status on a men’s professional golf tour last week when she shot a 75 in the final round of Canadian Tour spring qualifying school at Morningstar Golf Club in Parksville, B.C.
Her eight-over 296 for the tournament gave Beisiegel a non-exempt card.
“I went into today just trying not to get ahead of myself. I focused on thinking about where I was and not what could happen. I was assured in the fact that no matter what happened, it was going to be okay,” said the former LPGA and Futures Tour player.
Medalist honours went to Australian Andrew Kelly. His final round 75 and four-day total of 287 was enough resulted in a one-stroke margin over American Phil Telliard who closed with a two-under-par 70.
The low Canadian for the event was Riley Wheeldon of Comox, B.C., who made two birdies on his last four holes to finish at three-over-par 291 for the tournament, leaving him in a tie for fourth place.
Fellow Canadians Brad Revell of Kingston Ont. shot 292 and Clint Schiller of Lloydminster, Sask., earned non-exempt status.
