Aditi Ashok's tied-24 finish in the second stage of the Ladies Professional Golfers' Association (LPGA) earned her a qualification for stage three.

The 18-year-old carded rounds of 69-76-75-72 and totalled four-over 292 to advance to the next stage to be held in Daytona, Florida from November 30 to December 4.

Playing at the Panther and Bobcat Courses in Florida, Aditi started brilliantly and was placed tied-8th after the first day, but slipped next two days before recovering to a creditable 24th by the end of the week.

A total of 84 players from 21 countries made it to the stage three, the final stage of LPGA Qualifying Tournament.

“Playing at Bobcat and Panther was great, but Bobcat was more fun,” said Aditi.

The only Indian to have played on the main LPGA Tour has been Simi Mehra in the late 1990s.

The top 20 finishers at final stage will earn LPGA Tour membership for the 2017 season. They will get into most of the full-field events and a few other bigger events.

Players finishing between 21st and 45th get limited starts on LPGA and most events on Symetra Tour, the second level Tour to LPGA.
