Leeyen Peralta, shot a -3 under par 34 on her front side and a +4, 41 on the back side for a 1 over par 75 to tie for first place with Kasey Torres to qualify for the Toyota Tour Championship at Rancho California. Leeyen has discovered how much she enjoy’s the game after being away from golf for 6 months. Her parent’s had decided that she was not as committed to the preparation part of being successful, so they pulled her away from the game to see what her response would be. After about 4 month’s, she started to miss the game and began to play “recreationally” with her golf pal’s. Feeling refreshed ad invigorated, she decided she wanted to play competitively. She enlisted her long time coach, George Pinnell, to get her game back in a competitive mode to see how far she can take her skill set. Obviously, she is on schedule.
Roman Aragon shot 76 and missed the cut by 2 shots while Michelle Xu, shot 82 to also miss by 2 shot’s.
