So it is mid-January and I am off to sunny Southern Spain, or so I thought. Qualifying School is not always the nicest time of the year. Some of the players fail to get their card and therefore can't play any events the following season. Others get their card for the first time and so there are mixed emotions all round. The weather was pretty cold for the first week with everyone wearing jackets, beanies and waterproof trousers to try and keep the cold out.The last few days were warmer, although still not hot, but the clearer skies were better for photography. Some of the raised tees provide some chances for silhouette shots such as the one above of Lynn Kenny of Scotland. The winner of Q School was Anna Nordqvist of Sweden and 29 other girls received their full tour cards. The European leg of the tour starts on 23rd of April with the VCI European Cup.
