FRENCH LICK, Ind.
Casey Danielson won the Donald Ross Classic at the French Lick Resort on Saturday to take on the money management of the Symetra Tour and receive an LPGA Tour card.
Danielson finished 3 under 68 and finished 10 under 203 on the Donald Ross Course, one stroke head from Beth Wu and two ahead of Rachel Rohanna.
Danielson earned $ 37,500 to grow their season to $ 77,034 in total, with the final top 10 receiving LPGA Tour tickets. The 26-year-old former Stanford star from Wisconsin also won the Symetra Classic in North Carolina in May.
She won on Saturday after missing the cuts in three of her last four starts.
“There are many ups and downs in every golf career,” said Danielson. âI definitely learned a lot from the win and was a little ahead of me, I won’t admit it. Expectations came and made my golf game a little messed up because I wasn’t able to stay mentally present during a round.
Danielson conquered the short par-4 in 11th and hit 17 greens in the rule.
“There were definitely some tough times on the track to stay present, especially today when we were in the bottom bracket,” said Danielson. “All the work I’ve done really paid off to fight it.”
Wu finished on a 68 and Rohanna shot 71.
The Symetra Tour and French Lick Resort on Saturday announced a three-year deal for the French Lick Resort Stroke Play Championship, a 72-hole event on the Pete Due Course starting in 2022 with a record $ 335,000 and a winner’s check of $ 50,250 becomes.
