Amazing 25-foot birdie putt on the last hole sees Stephanie Meadow keep hold of LPGA Tour card
Stephanie Meadow retained her LPGA Tour card with a breathtaking 25-foot putt on the final hole at the Volunteers of America Classic.
The 27-year-old crucially birdied both the 17th and 18th in Texas to ensure she remains in the top 100 in the rankings - the requirement for maintaining Tour status.
She got off to a flier in the American tournament as she produced a first round of 63.
But the Northern Irishwoman's performance then wilted as she posted a 71 and a 73, leaving her with a lot to do to keep her place on the LPGA circuit next season.
But she managed to turn things around with a final round of 67 and a triumphant fist pump after her incredible longe-range putt on the 18th.
She finished tied for sixth - eight shots behind Cheyenne Knight - but crucially secured her place on the Tour for 2020.
