Stephanie Meadow’s hopes of gaining a full LPGA Tour card suffered a blow on Friday as she slipped down the Qualifying School leaderboard at Daytona Beach, Florida

Meadow’s round of 73, one over par, saw her drop 16 places to a tie for 43rd place.

The top 70 plus ties after round four go through to Sunday’s finale with the top 20 (no ties) winning full Tour status.

The 24-year-old is three shots outside the top 20.
