Jaclyn Sweeney: Sweeney currently stands in the dreaded number 11 spot on the Volvik Race for the Card standings. This year, she has only missed one cut and noted four top-10 finishes including a win at the Credit Union Challenge. Sweeney spent three week inside the top-10 after win but fell outside after a tied for 12th finish at the Symetra Classic.
Sara Brown: Brown, currently number 12 on the Volvik Race for the Card standings, slipped outside the top-10 after her first missed cut of the year at last week’s Vidalia Championship.
