TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Florida State University senior women’s golfer Kristin Tamulis was one of 28 competitors to advance from the U.S. Women’s Open local qualifier at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club May 12. Of the 67 participants, Tamulis tied for seventh with a 74 securing a spot in one of various sectional sites. Tamulis will compete in the 36-hole sectional qualifier at The Country Club at Heathrow Monday, June 9.
Tamulis is looking to qualify for the U.S. Women’s Open for the second time during her career. She played in the U.S. Women’s Open during the summer of 2002 but did not make the cut after two rounds. Tamulis also played in the U.S. Women’s Amateur and the Women’s Western last summer.
Tamulis is a three-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection and the only Florida State golfer to earn All-ACC honors more than twice in her career. She has played in three NCAA Regional and three ACC Championship tournaments and leads Florida State with a career-low 73.20 stroke average during the spring 2003 season.
Tamulis and the Seminoles will play in the 2003 NCAA Championship May 20-23 at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind.
