MacLaren moves step closer to LPGA Tour card

Wellingborough professional Meghan MacLaren kept alive her hopes of competing on the LPGA Tour next year as she progressed through to the final week of Q School at Magnolia Grove GC in Alabama, USA.

The 27-year-old looked set to miss out after posting 73 and 74, but she found her best when it mattered over the weekend as she carded just one bogey in 36 holes to finish with back-to-back rounds of 68 to sit joint-39th on three-under-par.

With all scores carrying over into the last four rounds at Highland Oaks GC, MacLaren needs to maintain her form this week as the top 45 players and ties will receive LPGA status for the 2022 season.
