HUMBERSTON pro golfer Sophie Walker faces an anxious wait for Ladies European Tour action.

The 28-year-old, pictured, has been waiting to return since her joint-56th finish at the Tenerife Open in Spain last month.

She is currently 75th on the Order of Merit and has earned more than 25,000 euros so far this season.

But because she had to re-qualify for the Tour via the Qualification School after finishing outside the top-80 last season, she has a reduced status this time around.

And that means she has to wait patiently as a reserve for some events, hoping withdrawals give her the chance to shine.

The Tour is heading to China for two events – the Suzhou Taihu Open, which starts tomorrow, and the Sanya Ladies Open, which tees off a week on Friday.

But frustratingly for Walker, she has just missed out on the Suzhou showpiece. Five reserves have gained entry to the main draw, but Walker is still the third reserve in line with the first-round list having been produced.

She is fourth reserve for the Sanya Ladies Open.

Walker’s best finish so far this season is her joint 11th placing at the Deloitte Ladies Open, in Holland.
