Millican Tied For 34th At Venice LPGA Sectionals
Oct. 4, 2006
VENICE, Fla. - Former East Carolina golfer Adrienne Millican carded a 2-over par 74 during the first round at the Venice LPGA Sectional Qualifying Tournament at Plantation Golf and Country Club on Tuesday.
The Fuquay-Varina native currently sits in a share of 34th place after recording a front-nine score of 40 (4-over-par) and a back-nine 2-under-par 34 on the Bobcat course (par-72, 6,401). She sits five shots off the lead, which is held by Kim Augusta (Rumford, R.I.) and Eun-Hee Ji (Seoul, South Korea) with a 3-under-par 69.
Millican, a Conference USA All-Decade and two-time first-team selection, holds ECU's career scoring average of 75.63 as well as the school-record for tournament wins (five).
Second round qualifying will continue Wednesday morning with Millican playing the Panther course (par-72, 6,226).
Players are competing on both the Bobcat and Panther courses at Plantation Golf and Country Club, playing each of the courses once before the 36-hole cut is made following the second round. The final two rounds, which will feature the low 70 players and ties, will be played on the Bobcat Course. The top-30 players and ties at the end of 72 holes will advance to the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla., Nov. 29-Dec. 3.
The Venice qualifier is the second of the LPGA Tour's two sectional qualifying events in 2006. The first was at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif., two weeks ago. The top-30 finishers and ties from each qualifier join current LPGA Tour members attempting to improve their status and the players who finished sixth through 15 th on the final 2006 Duramed Futures Tour money list at the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament.
