LPGA Q- School Preview

137 ladies will be competing for just 17 fully exempted spots on the 2008 LPGA Tour this week in Florida. Basically, 15% of the competition will get cards. That's an incredibly difficult task. The ladies will play 72 holes (2 rounds at both the Legends and Champions courses at LPGA International) before a cut is made to the low 70 and ties for the final shootout on Sunday. Should be a heck of a time.

Here are some of the notables you may know among the field:
Virada Nirapathpongporn
Beth Bauer
Jane Park
Ashley Prange (Big Break fame/infamy)
Angela Jerman
Kelli Kuehne
Michelle Ellis
Becky Lucidi (also of Big Break, had a nice year on the Futures Tour)
Paige MacKenzie
Paula Marti
May Wood
Allison Hanna-Williams
