Pauline Roussin-Bouchard plays her card for the LPGA Tour
Pauline Roussin-Bouchard, the only Frenchwoman entered in the LPGA Cards final in Mobile (Alabama), must finish in the top 20 to retain her full playing rights on the American circuit. After four rounds, she is three moves away from this goal. She will have to put in a good performance during the final round this Wednesday.
A suspenseful finale
To advance to the LPGA Tour, Pauline Roussin-Bouchard must finish in the top 20 in the final cards, which take place December 1-6 in Mobile, Alabama. After four rounds, she ranks 35th at -9, three shots from the qualifying threshold. She will therefore have to achieve a good performance during the last round, this Wednesday, to hope to win her ticket.

Pauline Roussin-Bouchard is not the only one coveting a place on the LPGA Tour. She faces 108 other players from around the world, some of whom already have experience on the American circuit. The current leader is South Korean So Mi Lee, who took control with an impressive score of -27, thanks to a 63 (-9) in the fourth round.
A dream within reach
If successful, Pauline Roussin-Bouchard would join the two other French women present on the American circuit, the world top three Céline Boutier and Perrine Delacour ranked 78th in the Rolex Ranking. She would also have the opportunity to participate in more major tournaments and compete against the stars of women's golf, such as Nelly Korda, Jin Young Ko or Lilia Vu.
