Jaclyn Sweeney earns European tour card

After missing out at the LPGA Tour's final stage of Q-School, Bradenton's Jaclyn Sweeeney strung five strong rounds together for entry onto the 2011 Ladies European Tour.

Sweeney, who left Arizona State early to become a professional, earned 1,100 euros following a 6-under par total at the La Manga Club in Spain to grab second place.

The former Pendleton School standout crafted a final-round 71 for a 355 total. Sweden's Caroline Hedwall took the medalist honors after 15-under par total.

Hedwall is a former NCAA Women's individual champion.

The rest of the top 30 from the LET's Q-School join Sweeney and Hedwall with tour cards for the upcoming season.

A key scoring hole for Sweeney was the South Course's No. 8.

Measuring at just 341 yards, Sweeney took advantage with birdies in two of three rounds on the short par-4.

Sweeney also capitalized with a 5-under performance on the par-5s during the week.

The first LET event is the HANDA Women's Australian Open Feb. 3-6.
