Former Trojan Nicole Castrale Earns LPGA Tour Card

Aug. 31, 2005

As the Futures Tour season came to an end this week, former Trojan team captain Nicole Castrale (formerly Dalkas) officially graduated to the LPGA Tour.

The four-year Trojan (1998-2001) was among the top top five players on the final Futures Tour money list who all earn full exemption for the LPGA Tour for the following year. The next 10 players on the money list receive conditional status.

Castrale finished fourth on the money list after winning twice (Northwest Indiana Futures Golf Classic and Quality Concepts Kankakee Futures Golf Classic) and having six other top 10 finishes. Her scoring average for the season was 70.75, the second lowest on the tour.

Castrale will join several other Trojans currently competing on the LPGA Tour. Among them are: Linda Ishii, Candie Kung, Jill McGill, Mikaela Parmlid, Jennifer Rosales, and Kim Saiki.
