Megan Khang’s response to her father’s question about if she really wanted to turn pro, after a little thought replied; “Yeah, why not? It’s what I want to do with my life.”
The pair were at the LPGA International in Daytona Florida for young Megan’s first event as a professional in a Suncoast Blue, (developmental), tour event. In fact, she finished tied for fourth in the event just days before the start of LPGA Stage III Q-School, December 2-6.
The 18 year old from Rockland, Mass. is making her first appearance at LPGA Q-School in her quest to secure her LPGA Tour playing privileges for the 2016 season. She comes LPGA International for the third and final stage after finishing second and third respectively in stages I and II Q-Schools.
Young Megan Khang has been turning heads in the golf world since she was a junior golfer knocking off much older and seasoned players competing in events from the U.S. Challenge Cup events all the way to her qualifying for U.S. Women’s Open, first at age 14 then 16. This year she was low amateur at the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open and is No. 8 in the Women’s World Amateur Golf Rankings. It is easy to see why Khang one of the most talented players in the field of 157 players at the final stage of Q-School.
After Day one Megan is T-9th, just four shots off the lead, after an opening round -3/69.
We all, I’m sure, wish Megan luck as she begins the next chapter in her tournament golf journey.
