Meadow eager to secure return to the big stage
Stephanie Meadow feels ready to make her mark on the LPGA Tour next season after hitting second on the Symetra Tour money list after 12 starts.
The Jordanstown native (26) needs to finish in the top 10 in the money list on the second-tier US circuit to guarantee her return to the top flight in 2019.
And she's right back on track after last week's play-off defeat in the Danielle Downey Credit Union Classic in New York.
"I am enjoying being in contention a lot this year, and I am learning a lot," said Meadow, who won the IOA Championship in a play-off in April.
The former US college star suffered an L5 pars stress fracture in her lower spine and lost her LPGA Tour card last year. But she's now fighting fit again.
She joins Cavan's Leona Maguire in the Fuccillo Kia Classic in Albany this week.
