Park tops LPGA Tour qualifiers at Q-school

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (AP) — Jane Park completed a start-to-finish victory in the U.S. LPGA Tour Final Qualifying Tournament on Sunday, topping the 17 players who earned full 2008 playing status.

Park, the 2004 U.S. Women's Amateur winner, had a 17-under 274 total.

"I was playing great, so I knew I had a good chance to win," Park said. "Just being able to pull it off was just a great confidence booster. I just proved to myself that I can go pretty deep under par. It's a great feeling."

Su A Kim (66) was second, followed by Hee Young Park (70) at 10 under.

Kelli Kuehne (67) was another stroke back at 9 under, and Carolina Llano (70, 8 under) also earned a full tour card along with Yani Tseng (72, 7 under), Jacqueline Yang (69, 6 under), Russy Gulyanamitta (70, 6 under), Sarah Kemp (68, 5 under), Becky Lucidi (69, 5 under), amateur Shanshan Feng (70, 5 under), Louise Friberg (72, 5 under), Meredith Duncan (73, 5 under), amateur Sandra Gal (69, 4 under), Danielle Downey (70, 4 under), Liz Janangelo (72, 4 under) and Sophie Giquel (73, 4 under).
