Kwak only made one cut in 2013, however, and barely
made more money that season than she had in 2012. She did not regain
a card at Q-School and played on the Symetra tour in 2014. Fortunately,
she did quite well on that tour, finishing second on the money list
thanks to 7 top tens and 2 wins. She thus earned back a full tour
card on the LPGA for 2015.
Min Seo had by far her best season on tour in 2015.
Although she still missed more cuts than she made, she had two of
her best ever finishes on the LPGA. At the Swinging Skirts in April,
she managed a solo 4th place despite shooting a final round 74.
At the Meijer Classic, she produced her best ever score, a 65, en
route to a tie for 13th. Thus, she made $165K for the year, roughly
20 times her next best season, and finished 76th on the money list.
For the first time, she earned a category 1 status on tour!
Kwak started out her 2016 season well by notching
two top tens in her first three starts: a tie for 8th at the Pure
Silk Bahamas, and a tie for 4th, her best yet finish, at the Australian
Women's Open. After that, however, she missed the cut at most of
the rest of the events she played. She wound up earning $117,459,
which put her 92nd on the money list. Her status slipped to category
11 for 2017.
