May 22, 1999



TULSA, Okla – The Florida State women’s golf team would not get a chance to stage a final round comeback at the Tulsa Country Club Saturday. Heavy thunderstorms forced Tournament officials to halt play and revert back to third round results. The 72-hole NCAA Championships was reduced to 54, and Duke University walked away with their first ever womens golf National Championship.



Florida State was in 13th place after the third round, 45 shots behind Duke. The Lady Seminoles had their best round of golf on the first day of the Championships, firing a 307 to place them in ninth place. Senior Amy Bond was the top finisher for Florida State. Bond had a three-round total of 231 to put her in a tie for 35th place. Senior Erika Iding finished three strokes behind Bond, placing her in a tie for 48th. Senior Amy Spooner fired two straight 78’s to open the Championships and finished with a three-day total of 240. Sophomore Louise Wright’s best round came on day one of the Championships when she shot a 76. Wright finished the tournament in a tie for 63rd place. Senior Sarah Capie finished in a tie for 77th place, with her low round of the tournament coming on day two when she fired a 78.



Arizona State’s Grace Park claimed the individual Championship. Park was one under-par for the tournament, finishing with a three-round total of 212. Duke’s Candy Hannemann was one stroke behind her with an even-par 213 for the Championships.
