Sept. 27, 2005

PACE, Fla. –
The Florida State women’s golf B-team won the championship at the Bubba Watson Invitational Tuesday as the Seminoles put up a team score of 619 in the two-round event held at the Stonebrook Golf Club. Seminole junior Kayla Shaul won the individual title with back-to-back 73s, edging out Paige Haverty of Catawba College by two strokes.

Florida State won the team total as it defeated West Florida, the host school, by seven strokes. The Seminoles carded the best team total of the event with a 308 in Monday’s first round and closed the event with a 311 in Tuesday’s second round. The Seminoles’ seven-stroke margin of victory in the first round helped them to the win as they finished tied with West Florida’s 311 score in the second round.

Shaul (Cumming, Ga.) was the only player to finish both rounds under par on the par 74 course, accounting for two of the six rounds in the tournament that were finished at or under par. The other golfers to record a score in the red were Haverty, Westman, Jackie Studor of Northwood University of Michigan (finished tied for third), who fired a 73 Monday, and Camila Gonzalez of Florida (finished seventh), who put up an even-par 74 Monday. All players who shot a sub-par round finished in the top ten.

Three Seminoles finished in the top ten: Shaul, Michelle Steakin with a 155 total, who finished tied for eighth and Sara Young with 157 total, which was good enough for tenth place.
