Local golfer trying to qualify for LPGA

Golf is usually a sport that residents of Fort St. John are unable to play in December.


However, local golfer Kirby Dreher is currently in Daytona, Fla. attempting to qualify for the LPGA tour. The tournament takes place over five days and 90 holes, where 118 golfers play both the Legends as well as Champions golf courses.

The first 72 holes are played on both courses, while the final 18 holes take place on the Champions course.

A cut will take place after 72 holes, where the number of players gets reduced to 70 golfers.

Dreher, who currently sits tied for 101st after 2 rounds, shot a 77 on the first day and a 78 today.

Only the Top 40 players receive tournament memberships, so Dreher has some catching up to do if she is to qualify for the LPGA. Best of luck Kirby, everyone at home is routing for you.
