Glancing down the field for LPGA Sectional Qualifying, several names stick out. U.S. Women’s Amateur runner-up Jessica Korda headlines the field in terms of hot-shot amateurs. The 17-year-old will begin her quest for an LPGA card Sept. 14-17 at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif. 

Other notables include 2010 NCAA champion Caroline Hedwall, also playing as an amateur. Danielle McVeigh, a stout member of this year’s GB&I Curtis Cup team, will be there along with newly-minted pro Jennifer Johnson, who played with Korda on the victorious U.S. team. 

There’s Sara Brown (think Michigan State/Big Break) and Sarah Brown (think wedge debacle). Former Duke standout Virada Nirapathpongporn, who played in 16 events on the Duramed Futures Tour this year, is back in school along with recent Blue Devil grad Alison Whitaker. 

Also keep an eye on Kimberly Kim, Jaclyn Sweeney and Belen Mozo.
