DAYTONA BEACH, FLA, November 30, 2016 – Amateur Katelyn Dambaugh (North Charleston, S.C.) and Pannarat Thanapolboonyaras (Roi-et, Thailand) posted 5-under rounds of 67 on the Jones Course to share the first round lead at the final stage of the LPGA Qualifying Tournament.

“I was just focusing on having fun out there,” Dambaugh said. “My coach from home was on the bag and we were just out there goofing off and having fun like we always do. I’m just trying to take it one shot at a time and not put pressure on myself and letting the results take care of themselves.”

The senior at the University of South Carolina made five birdies and a hole out eagle against a pair of bogeys to post her 5-under round.

“It feels good obviously,” Dambaugh said of her play. “I came here with not many expectations. I just came to try and play my best and do what I’ve been doing. I knew if I did that I’d have a decent round today and getting off to a good start makes it a little easier.”

While a strong finish would obviously earn Dambaugh her 2017 Tour Card she isn’t thinking that far into the future just yet.

“My goal here was just to play the best I can and get some more experience,” Dambaugh said. “I can get a little bit more status for Symetra when I graduate so that’s the goal.”

You might surprised to learn who Dambaugh looks up to.

“I really look up to Phil Mickelson because I like his attitude on the golf course, you never see him swear or throw clubs,” said Dambaugh. “I just love how he holds himself.”

Thanapolboonyaras, who finished T15 at Q-School last season, will look to retain her card after finishing 123rd on the 2016 LPGA money list with $42,988 earned.

The duo will take a one-shot lead over Min-G Kim (Chula Vista, Calif.), Nasa Hataoka (Ibaraki, Japan) and Jaye Marie Green (Boca Raton, Fla.) who also competed on the Jones Course.

Mel Reid (Loughborough, England), JeongEun Lee (Seoul, South Korea) and Celine Boutier (Montrouge, France) all shot 3-under for the low rounds on the Hills Course and are in a group of eight players who sit two-shots back.

On Wednesday, the Hills Course played to an average of 75.068 while the Jones played 72.621.
