Aree Song Wins 2010 LPGA Qualifying School Tournament

Aree Song at Q-school

On a day when high scores littered the leaderboard, Aree Song’s 1-over 73 was enough to earn medalist honors at the 2010 LPGA Qualifying School tournament. Song, of South Korean and Thai heritage, finished at 6-under overall, two better than fourth round leader, amateur Jessica Korda. Korda stumbled with a 5-over 77 as her two shot lead at the start of the day vanished.

Jessica Korda at Q-school

Aree Song is a name familiar to many LPGA fans. One of my most vivid memories of her is when she went toe to toe down to the wire with Grace Park at the 2004 Kraft Nabisco Championship. While Park went on to win the Major championship, Song was very impressive as an 18 year old vying for Major honors. Since then, she has been fighting some illness issues. Might this be the spark that reignites the career of the golfer formerly known as Aree Wongluekiet? Naturally, I hope so. Aree is one of my favorite players. I hope 2011 is a season to remember (for good reasons, of course!).
