SAN ANTONIO, Texas (seminoles.com) –
Carlton Kuhlo is in a tie for 26th place in the individual standings and the Seminole women’s golf team is in 12th place in the team standings after two rounds of the Alamo Invitational at the Briggs Ranch Golf Course with one round remaining to be played in the event. Kuhlo, who carded a career-best score of 69 in the first round, has a career-best 36-hole total of 145 entering the final round as she looks to finish as Florida State’s leader for the first time in her career.
No. 8 Arkansas vaulted over No. 5 Oklahoma to take over the lead in the team standings and will begin the final 18 holes with a two shot lead over the Sooners. LSU, which played the best team round of the day, has moved into third place after finishing the first round in a tie for fifth place in the team standings. Lindsay Gahm of LSU is the individual leader with a two day total of 136; she has carded identical scores of 68 in the first two rounds. Gahm holds a two stroke lead over Sanna Nuutinen of LSU and Sarah Schober of Florida.
“We finished well today but we have to be able to get off to better starts moving forward,” said head coach Amy Bond. “Each of the five players we have competing for us in this event has the ability to play this course and play it well – we have to show that ability tomorrow as we begin to look forward to the spring season.”
Kuhlo (Tallahassee, Fla.) continued to play well in the second round after enjoying a nearly flawless first round as she carded her career best score of 69. She played her final 17 holes of the afternoon at 1 over par with 14 holes scored at par or better and two birdies. Kuhlo carded back to back birdies on holes No. 4 and 5 and played eight straight holes scored a par to begin her back nine.
Kuhlo has earned seven birdies and 30 of 36 holes scores at par or better through the first two rounds. She has been very consistent with three sets of consecutive birdies; streaks of eight and five holes in a row scored at par and has not played back to back holes scored above par.
Freshman Anna Sophia Böhmer (Cali, Colombia) and junior Laure Castelain (Bordeaux, France) carded the two lowest scores of the day for the Seminoles – 2 over par scores of 74. Böhmer is in a tie for 39th place with a two day total of 147 (3 over par) while Castelain is in a tie for 59th place with a total of 150 (6 over par)
Florida State begins play in the third and final round looking to move up in the standings and earn its fourth top 10 team finish of the four-event fall season. The Seminoles finished in a season-best tied for fifth place at the Lady Paladin Invitational in September and are ranked 44th nationally according to GolfStat.
The Seminoles will play with Louisville and Texas State in the final round – a shotgun start – beginning at 9:45 EST for all of the teams.
