Clarkton’s Kayla Thompson shot a one-under-par 71 Saturday on the Arnold Palmer Course in Rancho Mirage, California, but missed the cut by two strokes in the LPGA and Symetra Tour Qualifying Tournament-Stage 1.
Thompson shot rounds of 74-79-71=224 and fell two shots short of advancing to Sunday’s round. Golfers advancing to the fourth round were assured of earning a Symetra Tour card.
Her undoing in the tournament was a triple bogey 8 on the 18th hole during Friday’s second round. On Saturday, she had 15 pars, 2 birdies and 1 bogey.
