“Last weekend, I knew I had it in me and am happy with the results,” said Tardy. “It’s nice to be sitting in the Volvik Race for the Card top three currently, but I have to keep in mind we have a lot of season left. Arizona and California are right around the corner. I look forward to competing again and bettering my game each week.”
Alone in sixth with collective earnings from the first two events this year of $8,310 is Lakareber Abe (The Woodlands, Texas). Then it is Lauren Coughlin (Charlottesville, Virginia) and rookie Yae Eun Hong (Seoul, Republic of Korea) tied for seventh position at $6,867.
“It was great to see some familiar faces and get back on the road with the Symetra Tour. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to be competing again this year,” Coughlin said. “I’m excited to see my name in the Volvik Race for the Card top-10 this week and can’t wait to compete more down the road.”
Finally, with two top-15 performances so far on the year, Dewi Weber (Groningen, Netherlands) finds herself at No. 9 with $5,776. Rounding out the top-10 is Paula Reto (Bloemfontein, South Africa) and Ji Eun Baik (Cumming, Georgia), tied for the final spot after each cashed a $5,663 paycheck in Calhoun County.
At the end of the season, the top five players in the Volvik Race for the Card standings will graduate onto the LPGA Tour for the 2021 campaign.
