Pamela Pretswell moved up three places to No 29 in the Women's World Amateur Golf Rankings this midweek on the strength of her finishing third in rain-shortened French women's amateur international tournament at Morfontaine at the weekend.
This means the Bothwell Castle GC member will have to play in the 72-hole pre-qualifying event at the Ladies European Tour School at La Manga, Spain from January 8 to 11.
Had she been ranked in the leading 25 at the LET's closing date for entries, she would have been exempt from pre-qualifying and gone straight through to the Final Q School field for the 90-hole event from January 15 to 19.
