Christine Song is a Korean American golfer
who grew up in Burbank, California. She won a couple of AJGA
events as a junior. She played on the Futures Tour in 2009,
where she finished 8th on the money list, including a second
place finish. This earned Song membership on the LPGA tour
Song only played two LPGA events in 2010,
missing the cut in both. Instead, she focused on the Futures
Tour. It was a good decision: Song finished third on the tour's
money list and earned a full card for the 2011 LPGA season.
The highlight of her season was back to back wins in early
June. Song had 6 other top tens besides those victories.
Song did not have a good season on the LPGA
in 2011, with her best finish a tie for 38th. She wound up
126th on the tour money list, meaning she had to return to
Q-School to try to regain status on tour. Remarkably, she
was brilliant at Q-School, leading the entire field almost
the entire week, sometimes by as much as five shots. In the
final round she was caught and passed, but still finished
second to secure full status on tour in 2012.
Song made less than $20,000 on the LPGA tour
in 2012 and finished 129th on the money list, not good enough
to maintain status on the LPGA. Most likely, she will play
on the Symetra Tour in 2013.
