Seminoles’ Zimmer Holds First Round Lead At Franklin Street Trust Tar Heel Women’s Golf Invitational

Oct. 5, 2001




CHAPEL HILL, N.C. –
Tallahassee native Alison Zimmer shot a career-best one-under par 71 and is the first round individual leader at the Franklin Street Trust Tar Heel Women’s Golf Tournament at the Finley Golf Course. Zimmer shot a blistering 32 on the front nine and was the only golfer to finish under par in first round of the tournament. She begins play in the second round with a one shot lead over Furman’s Brandi Jackson. Florida State is ninth in the team standings after the first round.


Zimmer, a senior who attended Lincoln High School in Tallahassee, played extremely well on the front nine as she carded a 32 and came home with a 39 on the back nine. Her score of 71 is one stroke better than her previous best single-round score of 72 during the second round of the 2000 Lady Paladin Fall Invitational. Zimmer is looking for her first career collegiate victory. Her best finish during the first three years of her career came at the 2000 ACC Championship as she finished in 22nd-place.


Sophomore Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) is in second place among the five Seminole golfers participating in the tournament. She carded a seven-over par 79 and is in a tie for 31st-place in the individual standings. Sophomore Katie Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.) shot an 80 and is tied for 42nd in the individual standings.


Florida State, which is ranked 38th in the nation by Golfweek.com, is currently in ninth place in the team standings. The Seminoles begin the second round within four strokes of fifth place and within 13 strokes of second place. Duke, the defending ACC Champion, is in first place in the team standings.


The second round begins at 9 a.m. Saturday morning and the final round, a shotgun start, also begins at 9 a.m. Sunday morning. Duke is the defending tournament champion.
