Alana Uriell disqualified signing incorrect scorecard
Few things in golf are tougher than the grind of Qualifying School. Particularly the LPGA’s eight-round marathon that started this week. But Friday at LPGA Q-Series in Mobile, Alabama, was especially brutal for Alana Uriell.
The 26-year-old signed for a wrong score in the second round – signing for a par that should’ve been a bogey – and was disqualified. An LPGA media official relayed that Uriell came into the tournament office after the fact and self-reported the error.
Uriell opened with an even-par 72. She would’ve been 4 under for the tournament and in a share of 18th. The top 45 players this week earn LPGA status for 2023. The field is cut to top 70 and ties after the first round rounds, played at Magnolia Grove over the Crossings and Falls courses.
The former Arkansas player from Carlsbad, California, competed in 21 events on the LPGA this season and finished 130th on the Race to CME Globe points list. She earned $66,506 this season.
Riley Rennell and Manon De Roey pace the field at 10 under.
