Rachel Rohanna, Waynesburg, completed her first year on the LPGA Tour with just over $32,000 in earnings in nineteen events and finished 135th on the money list. The top 100 retain their LPGA Tour cards.

Rohanna returned to the LPGA Tour Qualifying Tournament, November 30-December 4, at LPGA International in Daytona Beach on the Arthur Hills and Rees Jones courses. She recorded 74-78-71-76—299 to finish eight strokes short of the 72-hole cut of 291. Those who made the cut played a fifth round with the top 21 and ties gaining full status for the 2017 LPGA Tour season.

Rohanna will have limited status on the LPGA Tour and full privileges on the Symetra Tour in 2017. She secured her LPGA Tour card for 2016 by finishing 9th on the 2015 Symetra Tour money list with just under $50,000 in earnings and one title. She played collegiate golf at Ohio State, 2008-12, making All-Big Ten twice and being in the Buckeyes’ starting line-up during her entire career.
