After a successful season on the Symetra Tour, the top developmental circuit for the LPGA Tour, Langhorne's Brittany Bevenuto advanced to the final stage of 2016 LPGA qualifying in Daytona Beach, Fla.
It was a good news, bad news event.
Benvenuto scored a five-round total of 365, finishing 57th in the tournament (72-72-77-70-74). The bad news is despite that strong performance it did not qualify for the 2016 LPGA Tour as only 44 players earned status. She did re-earn Symetra Tour status for 2016.
Earlier in the fall Benvenuto, who attended Neshaminy Langhorne High School and the University of Arizona, placed 43rd in the Symetra Tour Championship Tournament on a 72-75-69-73--289 effort.
