Round 3 Team Scores / Round 3 Individual Scores / Round 3 Team and Individual Scores

NORMAN, Okla. (seminoles.com) – Florida State sophomore Charlotte Heath carded a 2 over par score of 212 and finished in a tie for 11th place in the individual standings, and the Seminole Women’s Golf team finished tied for fourth place in the team standings as play in the Schooner Fall Classic at the Belmar Golf Club ended.  Heath led a trio of Seminoles who finished in the top 15 of the individual standings as they finished in the top five of the team standings in their first event of the fall season.

Oklahoma State won the team championship with an 824-team score and the top two finishers in the individual standings.  The Cowgirls led wire-to-wire and took a 20-stroke win over Texas A&M – the second place team in the standings.  Caley McGinty of Oklahoma State won the individual title with an 8 under par score of 202.  Rina Tatematsu, also of Oklahoma State, finished four strokes behind McGinty.  McGinty, a junior transfer from Kent State, won her first individual title as a Cowgirl.

“For the first tournament of the season, we certainly saw many positive things from each of the players,” said Head Coach Amy Bond.  “Playing in the windy conditions certainly got the best of us at times.  The great thing is that we leave this tournament with a group of hungry players who are excited to become better players.  The purpose of the fall season is to play a variety of different courses with a variety of different lineups.”

Heath capped her strong performance with a 2 over par 72 in the final round and finished with a team-leading total of 212.  She carded two brides and 14 holes at par or better in finishing as Florida State’s leader for the second time in her career.  Heath also led the Seminoles on the scoreboard at the spring 2021 Moon Invitational.  She finished the three round tournament with 10 birdies and was one of 12 players in the field who carded 10 or more birdies.

Seniors Amelia Williamson and Beatrice Wallin finished in a tie for 15th place with identical scores of 213.  For Williamson, the finish was her fifth career top-15 placing; for Wallin it was her 19th career top 15 finish.

Williamson finished with scores of 71-69-73 to reach her score of 213.  She has now finished 3 over par or better in five of her last nine tournaments dating to the beginning of the spring 2021 season.

Wallin got off to a hot start in the final round as she totaled three birdies on her first five holes and was 3 under par at the turn.  She finished the tournament with scores of 69-72-72 and has carded scores of 72 or better in six of her last 10 rounds.  Wallin is a cumulative total of 6 strokes under par in her last four collegiate tournaments.

Sophomore Alice Hodge played the best round for the Seminoles in the final round of the championship as she carded a 70 – a score which tied her career-low score for a single round.  Hodge was 1 stroke under par over her final 14 holes of the round with two birdies and 13 holes played at par or better.

The Seminoles begin preparations quickly for their next event – the Barbara Nicklaus Cup – at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.  Florida State’s nationally ranked men’s and women’s teams will compete against Arizona State, Auburn and Ohio State in a Solheim/Ryder Cup format.  Each team (men and women) will compete against each other team in mixed foursome and singles competition over two days (Oct. 4-5) to determine a team champion.
