DAYTONA BEACH, FL (December 3, 2016) -- Former San Jose State standout Regan De Guzman remained as the low amateur with one day left at the grueling final stage of the LPGA and Symetra Tour Qualifying School. De Guzman, 5-under in a tie for 16th, will have to put together a strong final round at the LPGA International Golf Course to attain her LPGA Tour card. Overall six of the ten amateurs in the field made the 72-hole cut.

On Saturday De Guzman carded a 2-over 74 but things could have been much worse. Through 12-holes De Guzman was 4-over and without a birdie until she rolled in two down the stretch on Nos. 13 and 18 to salvage her round.

USC senior Karen Chung is just one-stroke further back in a tie for 19th at 4-under. Chung, a former All- American, had an interesting third round that ended as a 1-under 71. On the frontside Chung had a pair of double-bogeys and also a bogey on the backside, however she was able to overcome the slip ups thanks to six birdies, including back-to-back circles to conclude the day.
