Cindy has something in common with Tiger, Sean Foley.

Wiefan,

I like the pairing of Cindy and Larry of Life on Tour. Larry has spent decades on the LPGA tour so it would be enjoyable to see him have a steady gig with a quality player and a little more cash in the bank.

Many rookies only play a couple of events. Some don't play any events all year! You can thank the LPGA schedule that has so many limited field events for that, plus the system that gives Tour cards to players finishing 6 through 10 on the Futures Tour money list. They get such low priority they can only get in events by a sponsor's exemption or qualifying for an open tournament. They're still considered tour rookies through. It's the same for the players who finish way down the list in Q-School. If they're rookies -- not all are -- they get low priority.

That's what happened with Cindy Lacrosse. She finished T34 at Q-School so she got Category 20 which starts at something like Priority number 329. You're not going anywhere with that number. The first tournament she got in was the Jamie Farr. That was a sponsor's exemption. Only winning three times on the Futures Tour she moved up to category 13 which put her at priority number 158. That's still not great, but it was enough to get her into the Safeway Classic, but not any other tournament, so far. That's why she had to qualify this week.
