Danielson Finishes 2nd in Symetra Tour Championship, Will Play on LPGA Tour in 2022

October 11, 2021


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Casey Danielson had already guaranteed herself a place on the LPGA Tour for 2022, but she added a little frosting to the top of her 2021 season on the Symetra Tour with a final-round 66 Sunday and a second-place finish in the Symetra Tour Championship. 

The 26-year-old former Stanford All-American from Osceola birdied three of the last six holes at LPGA National's Jones Course for the 6-under-par 66, which gave her a 72-hole total of 268 (20 under). That bettered the old tournament record of 269 (Ruixin Liu, 2018), but Prima Thammaraks birdied the par-3 17th and eagled the par-5 18th for a 65. That gave her the tournament record with an aggregage of 266 -- and a two-stroke victory. 

It was worth $37,500, which bumped her season earnings to $65,443 and lifted Thammaraks, 29, into the top 15 on the final 2021 Symetra Tour money list. But the former Iowa State star was still $10,000 short of making the top 10.

The top 10 on the year-end money list gained promotions to the LPGA Tour for next year. 

Danielson's runner-up effort was worth $23,417, which pushed her season total to $114,534, good for No. 3 on the money list. The four-time Wisconsin state high school champion won two Symetra Tour events this year and had six top-10's in 19 starts. 

Lilia Vu, 23, was No. 1 with $162,292. She won three times and had eight top-5 finishes. Fatima Fernandez Cano was a distant No. 2, with $119,180.

The former Tour Championship record-holder, Ruixin Liu, ended up No. 5 on this year's money list, with $95,281. 

Here are the top 10:

1. Lilia Vu, Fountain Valley, Calif. -- $162,292
2. Fatima Fernandez  Cano, Santiago de Compostela, Spain -- $119,180
3. Casey Danielson, Osceola, Wis. -- $114,534
4. Sophia Schubert, Oak Ridge, Tenn. -- $101,163
5. Ruixin Liu, Guangdong, China, $95,281
6. Maude-Aimee Leblanc, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada -- $94,188

8. Allison Emrey, Charlotte, N.C. -- $82,644
9. Morgane Metraux, Lausanne, Switzerland -- $75,771
