Melissa Reid has overcome illness to secure her card for next season's LPGA Tour by finishing joint eighth at Q-School at Daytona Beach in Florida.

Needing to finish in the top 20, Reid finished on 8 under, and T8.

Suffering from a heavy cold, Reid said: "I'm just super, super relieved."

A five-time winner on the Ladies European Tour, she said she would have considered her future in golf had she failed to get her card.

Mel carded rounds of 69, 64, 75, 72 and 72, and is now expected to relocate to the United States and begin playing a full schedule on the LPGA Tour.

She added: "I'm hoping my life now is going to run a little bit smoother. Nothing worth having comes easy, does it?"
