Rising Australian star Su Oh will need to make hay while the sun shines on limited starts on next year’s LPGA Tour.
Oh, 19, pushed back into the mix after a second-round 77 at Q-school in Florida, but came up shy of a full card for season 2016.
The Melburnian fired a final-round 71 at LPGA International in Daytona, leaving her at one under and three shots out of the magical top 20 who earned full playing privileges.
The Golf Australia rookie pro will likely get in the range of 6-8 starts on the LPGA Tour from the conditional status she sealed by finishing T32.
Fellow Victorian Stacey Keating also fell on the wrong side of a critical mark.
The former Victorian Open champion carded a final-round 76 to fall to five over the card, three shots out of the top 50 who earned conditional status.
Keating will have full status on the secondary Symetra Tour if she decides to play in the United States.
Emma de Groot, Rebecca Artis and Breanna Elliott missed the cut to play in the final round and will have conditional Symetra status.
The Q-School was won by rising Florida-based Chinese star Simin Feng, who played all five rounds under par and coasted to a seven-shot win at 18 under.
