JTNC Alum Yealimi Noh Qualifies for LPGA Tour
November 4, 2019
Concord resident and former JTNC Girls’ Player of the Year Yealimi Noh is now living the dream.
Still just 18, Noh, the winner of the 2018 U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship at Poppy Hills, earned her 2020 LPGA Tour card by finishing third at the recent LPGA Qualifying Tournament. Noh shot 15-under 557 (69-69-66-77-67-69-71-69) in the grueling, eight-round event.
Having turned pro in 2019, her best finish this season was a second at the Cambria Portland Classic, where she Monday qualified as a non-member.
“I’m just really happy that I’m finally done and will get to play next year,” Noh said.
