Amelia Garvey will tee off in Florida on Friday morning NZ time on a mission to get through another stage of the LPGA’s Q-School and will be flying the Kiwi flag all on her own.

Q-School teed off in August with five Kiwis in the running and finished with just Garvey, tomorrow she will fly the flag trying to get herself into the Q-series in November which will then hopefully lead to her joining Lydia Ko in the LPGA in 2022.

With only 45 players and ties advancing to the Q-Series, there’s a lot on the line for the former University of Southern California student who turned professional this year just before her 21st birthday.
