Q-School Tournaments: Day 4

Angela Oh is 18 holes away from returning to the LPGA Tour on a full-time basis.

The former Lady Vols golfer resides in 11th place through four of the five rounds being played this week at the LPGA Final Stage Qualifying Tournament in Daytona Beach, Fla. The top 25 finishers earn LPGA cards for 2012.

Oh, who played for Tennessee from 2006-08 and made 10 LPGA Tour starts in 2011, carded a 2-over-par 74 Saturday with 16 pars and just two bogeys. She stands 3 over par for the tournament heading into Sunday's final round.

A former UT teammate of Oh's, Nicole Smith, was on the wrong side of the cut line and finished her Q-School final stage at 13 over par. Smith tied for 77th place after posting scores of 75, 76, 75 and 75 over her four rounds.
