Tamulis Wins Individual Title And Seminoles Finish Fourth At Lady Gator Women’s Golf Tournament

March 11, 2003

Florida State senior Kristin Tamulis won the individual title and the Seminole women’s golf team finished in fourth place at the SunTrust Lady Gator Women’s Golf Invitational at the University of Florida Golf Course. It was the first individual victory of Tamulis’ career after finishing second twice previously in her four-year career.

Florida State finished in fourth place in the team standings with a team score of 892. The Seminoles averaged 299 strokes per round for the three-round event. Florida won the tournament with an 873 score. Tamulis became the first Seminole women’s golfer to claim an individual championship since current assistant coach Amy Bond won the 1998 Ryder/Florida State Championship tournament.

Tamulis (Naples, Fla.) closed out the tournament with a one-over par score of 71 to finish the tournament with a career-best 215 score for the 54-hole event. She shot identical scores of 71 in the final two rounds and defeated Aimee Cho of Florida by two strokes to gain the victory.

“I’m thrilled to win the event and even more thrilled our team finished well,” said Tamulis. “Winning here is special and it is a great way to begin our season. I have been looking forward to playing here since last season. It’s really a thrill to pull one out after finishing in second a couple of times during my career.”

Freshman Caroline Larsson (Danderyd, Sweden) finished tied for 14th to establish a personal career-best. She shot a career-low 73 in the third and final round to move up eight spots in the individual standings on the final say.

Juniors Katie Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.) finished in a tie for 39th place and Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) finished in a tie for 76th place in the final standings.
