The other players who qualified for the ISPS Handa Vic Open were Durdin and Knight, as well as Amelia Lewis of America, Ingrid Gutierrez Nunez of Mexico, and Sarah Schober of Austria.
Four players were forced to return to the course the following morning for a four-for-two playoff for the final spots with Simin Feng and Vani Kapoor advancing.
