Yealimi Does It! Concord golfer earns her LPGA Tour card
Yealimi Noh

Concord’s Yealimi Noh realized her dream this weekend that was put into motion following her sophomore year at Carondelet High School less than two and half years ago. The 18-year-old golfer finished third in the marathon called the Q-Series in North Carolina and now she has her ticket into the 2020 LPGA Tour.

Noh carded six of her eight rounds in the 60s during the Q-Series at Pinehurst and that earned her at 15 under par score good enough to best all but two of the 98 women trying to earn a LPGA Tour card in the final phases of the Q-Series, which began with golfers from 32 countries and 23 states.

Muni He (Chengdu, China) went under-par every round of the LPGA Q-Series to finish the eight-round tournament at -21.

Two-time LPGA Tour winner Hee Young Park (Seoul, South Korea), finished in solo second at -18 after posting a 2-under par 70 today as well.

Noh’s third-place finish was a relief after the LPGA Qualifying Tournament Stage II and then the two weeks at Q-Series. “I’m excited to play and have chances to win. I’m just really happy to be out there when I’m going to be out there. I’m just excited,” said Noh.  

“I [couldn’t] get too excited until it’s over. So after I hit my second shot, which is over the water—after I hit my second on the green and close, too, I was like—and I had mud on my ball, too. Yeah. I was like, Oh, if I go in the water this is not cool. Just going on green and finally being able to breathe, I don’t know, just really happy all of a sudden that I’m finally done and will get to play next year.”
