Nanna Koerstz Madsen earns LPGA shot after Downey Classic win

Nanna Koerstz Madsen (Copenhagen, Denmark) completed her dream season on the Symetra Tour with an emphatic third victory that will send her to the LPGA Tour on a “Battlefield Promotion” on Sunday at Brook-Lea Country Club. She fired a 6-under, 66 to break the 72-hole Symetra Tour scoring record and finished the weekend at 22-under, 266. The previous scoring mark was 19-under, set by Jennifer Song in 2010, so Koerstz Madsen is the first player in Tour history to crack 20-under.

Koerstz Madsen posted rounds of 66-67-67-66 to win by seven shots. She made 26 birdies and just four bogeys on the week. The first-place payout of $22,500 moves her from second back into the top spot on the Volvik Race for the Card money list with $85,456 earned in ten starts.
