Michelle Wie and Vicky Hurst make it to the final round of the LPG Q-school tournament

In the final round of the LPGA qualifying tournament, two teenagers are going to steal the lime light. They are: Michelle Wie and Vicky Hurst. The final round starts from today and the competition is very tough and both these players over came some big obstacles to reach this point of their career.

Nineteen-year-old Michelle Wie is already famous and earned lots of money but she has no big trophies to her credit. Wie qualified for her first LPGA tour at the age of 12 and then made it to the finals of an LPGA tour at the age of 13. Next year, she made record by finishing within 68 strokes; the lowest scores made by any female golfer playing against the males. Disaster struck last year as Wie incurred a serious wrist injury. She has not played for three months since completing the first stage of the qualifying school tournament.

On the contrary, 18-year-old Vicky Hurst, whom many consider to be the next great American player, lost her father while she was trying to qualify for the Ginn Open. Too young to play on the qualifying school tournament, last year, Hurst played in the less prestigious Duramed Futures Tour. In the tournament, Hurst won five times and became tour’s rookie of the year. During this time, she even finished her high school graduation. In the tour, she earned around a record $93,107. In the Jalapeno Golf Classic in Texas, she finished 54 holes within 198 strokes and broke Lorena Ochoa’s record. Hurst took only three exemptions to play on the LPGA Tour. Now, the big question is, who will make it through the final round?
