DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn shot a 2-under 70 on Saturday to maintain a six-stroke lead after the fourth round of the LPGA Tour qualifying tournament.
The 18-year-old Jutanugarn had a 15-under total at LPGA International. The final top 20 in the five-round event will earn full tour status.
"The biggest thing for me right now is just getting my card," Jutanugarn said. "Then I get to look forward to next year and how to hang on. That's hard. It's life. There will be so many challenges and you'll have to work harder and harder. Everybody works hard."
Japan's Ayako Uehara was second, also after a 70.
Two-time tour winner Christina Kim, tied for third after the second round, followed her third-round 75 with a 73 to drop into a tie for 24th at 1 under.
