MADISON, Ill. –
Florida State University sophomore golfer Alison Curdt shot a career-low 66 during the second round of the St. Louis Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association’s Women’s Championship and placed third in the event at the Gateway National Golf Links. She totaled a three-over par 145 for the 36-hole event and finished three strokes behind Ellen Port who gained medallist honors with an even-par 142.
Curdt’s five-under par 66 was the low round for the tournament and was a 13-stroke improvement from her first-round score of 79. Her five-under par score came during the rain-soaked second-round of play in the event. Curdt’s career-best score of 66 came after shooting an eight-over 79 in the first round. She rebounded in the second round to finish only one stroke behind University of Missouri graduate Jamie Tucker, who totaled a two-round score of 144 to finish in second place. Curdt’s second round performance brought her to within three strokes Port who won the tournament with an even par score of 142.
The tournament was played in the shadows of the landmark St. Louis Arch that is located just across the Mississippi River from the Gateway Golf Links.
Curdt, a St. Louis, Mo. native will compete for the Collegiate Players Tour National Championship at the Woodbridge Golf Club in Wylie, Texas, Aug. 13-15. She qualified to play in the championship based on her first place finish at the State Farm-A.L. Gustin Collegiate Open.
