DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Norway's Marianne Skarpnord shot a 2-under 70 on Sunday on the Champions Course to take a one-stroke lead over Nicole Jeray and Amanda Blumenherst after the fourth round of the LPGA Tour qualifying tournament.

Skarpnord, who also had a 70 on Sunday in the rain-delayed third round, had a 6-under 282 total at LPGA International. Jeray and Blumenherst had 67s, also on the Champions Course - the site of the final round Monday.

Lisa Meldrum (68) and Leah Wigger (72) were 4 under.

The final top 20 will earn Priority List Category 11 playing privileges. Players finishing 21st through 30th will be placed in Category 16, and Nos. 31-40 in Category 20.

The 23-year-old Skarpnord won the Deutsche Bank Ladies Open and Ladies Italian Open this year for her first Ladies European Tour titles.
