Kristen Park, Buena Park, CA, is competing for a spot on the 2013 Ladies European Tour. Kristen, who will turn 20, December 27, is in Marrakech, Morocco, and is currently in a tie for 44th place after the third round. The Lalla Aicha Tour School Final is being played at the Amelkis Golf Club and Al Maaden Golf Resort.
Kristen has been in Morocco since early December and was successful in passing the Pre-Qualifying Stage that was a prerequisite to the Final Stage. Kristen opened the Finals with a one over par 73. She shot 38 on the front nine and a one under par 35 on the back. She finished the round strong with birdies on 17 and 18.
The second round was pretty pedestrian with a one over par 37 on the front. Kristen started the back nine with 2 par’s and then put together three birdies in a row on 12, 13 and 14. Her only mistake was on the 18th hole where she made bogey to close out her round with a one under par 71.
Kristen started strong with birdies on one and two and another one on seven to post a strong 33 (-3) on her front nine. A lone bogey on fifteen was her only mistake of the round. She posted eight par’s and finished with a one over 37 to finish with a -2 (70) and put her into a tie for 44th. The projected cut is -1, so Kristen will be working hard to improve her score to secure her first professional “Tour Card.”
