Amanda Blumenherst, a non-member of the LPGA Tour, finished in a three-way tie for fifth at the CVS/pharmacy LPGA Challenge, after recording a 13-under-par 275 (70-71-67-67). Her back-to-back 67s in the third and final rounds of the event at Blackhawk Country Club propelled her up the leaderboard. The fifth-place finish is the best of her four sponsor exemptions in 2009, as she finished tied for 32nd at the Wegmans LPGA, missed the cut at the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic Presented by Kroger and tied for 40th at the CN Canadian Women's Open.
Just last week, the Duke University graduate earned medalist honors at the Palm Springs LPGA Sectional Qualifying Tournament, which granted her entry into the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament, Dec. 2-6, 2009, at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla.
