Korda and Sweeney make it through Q-School

Bradenton's Jessica Korda made it through the LPGA's Sectional Q-School stage with a final round of 73.

Korda's 6-under total for the 72-holes was good enough for a tie for sixth, which advances the 17-year-old amateur to the Final Stage of Q-School slated for December.

The top 30 and ties secured spots at LPGA International in Daytona Beach - site of Q-School's final stage.

Joining Korda in that select group is newly-turned professional Jaclyn Sweeney.

Originally from Andover, Mass., the would-be Arizona State University senior left school early for a crack at the professional world.

So far the Bradenton resident is making good on that decision.

Sweeney was near the top of the leaderboard with a pair of 69s in the opening two rounds last week.

She finished Thursday and Friday with two 74s at Mission Hills Country Club's Dinah Shore Course in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

Those scores still pushed Sweeney through to the final stage with a tie for 13th at the sectional qualifier.

There's one other sectional and it's at the local venue, Plantation Golf & Country Club in Venice.

Bradenton's Sookhee Baek is scheduled to participate after she failed to make the cut at the Mission Hills sectional.

The tournament runs Sept. 28-Oct. 1.
