She had one win on the Futures Tour in her rookie season and finished tenth on the season-ending money list to earn LPGA Tour status for 2010, although she was unable to gain entry into any LPGA events in 2010 because of her low status on the LPGA priority list and she played a second full season on the Futures Tour that year. She finished tied for fourth place in the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament on 12 December 2010 to earn full playing status on the LPGA for 2011.[2]
