MARRAKECH, Morocco — Former Chattanooga women’s golf standout Christine Wolf (2008-11) is one step closer to full-time status on the Ladies European Tour. Wolf shot 3-under-par 68 in her final round on Sunday to end up sixth in pre-qualifying field B.
Wolf posted scores of 70, 69, 73 and 68 for a total of 280. At 8 under, she finished eight shots off the pace set by Morocco’s Maha Haddioui. The top 45 from both pre-qualifying fields join 60 others vying for 2013 tour cards.
Those 150 are slated for five rounds, 90 holes, of play beginning Thursday, December 13, and ending Monday, December 17. Qualifying remains at Al Maaden and Amelkis Golf Clubs in Marrakech. The top 30 and ties earn full tour status.
Wolf’s 68 on Sunday included five birdies and one bogey, including birdies on four of the last five holes after her bogey on the par-5 13th. She tallied 16 birdies and 48 pars for the event, shooting minus seven at Al Maaden and one under at Amelkis.
The native of Igls, Austria owns school records for 18 (66), 36 (141) and 54-hole (209) totals. She won the 2012 Crete Ladies Open in October on the LET Access Series.
