WILMINGTON, N.C. (Seminoles.com) –
Florida State freshman Olivia Hullert and sophomore Alex Milan were a combined 1 under par over the final four holes and are tied for 36th place in the individual standings and the Seminole women’s golf team is in 14th place in the team standings following the first round of the Seventh Annual Landfall Tradition on the Jack Nicklaus Course at the Country Club of Landfall. The Seminoles are only six strokes out of 10th place as they work to earn their third top 10 team finish in three events during the fall season.

The Seminoles certainly improved during the round and were eight strokes over par on the back nine after finishing 11 over par on their front nine. The Seminoles counted only six holes over par coming home as compared to 11 holes over par on their way out.

“We didn’t do the little things today,” said head coach Amy Bond. “I was happy that we battled back over the second half of the day but we need to cut down on the big numbers and make more birdies. I like a lot of what I am seeing out there from all five players, but we have to be more consistent and do more of the little things to achieve more success.”

No. 16 Oklahoma State, one of eight teams ranked in the nation’s top 25 in the tournament, is in first place in the team standings with two rounds remaining to be played. The Cowgirls hold a one stroke lead of No. 5 Duke and a two stroke lead over No. 22 Purdue and No. 27 Texas Tech. A total of seven teams ranked in the top 25 nationally hold the top seven spots in the team standings. Kimberly Kaufman of Texas Tech, one of seven individual golfers ranked in the nation’s top 30, is the individual leader after 18 holes. She leads Kelsey Vines of Oklahoma State by two strokes.

Hullert (Bearum, Norway) played very well during the round as she carded 14 of 18 holes at par or better with one birdie. She was even par on her back nine (she began the round on hole No. 10) with one birdie, one bogey and seven more holes scored at par. Hullert recovered from a tough-luck front nine as she finished at 4 over par for her first nine holes with even par golf to finish the round.

Milan (Lutz, Fla.) was Florida State’s most consistent golfer during the round as she carded a team-high 15 holes at par; she was over par on only three holes. Milan carded scores of par on her first eight holes and her final six holes and was never more than four strokes over par during the round. Milan’s score of 76 is her second best of the fall season in four rounds. She carded a season low 73 in the first round of the Mercedes Benz Collegiate.

Hullert and Milan are both in a tie for 36th place in the individual standings.

Sophomore Carlton Kuhlo (Tallahassee, Fla.) is in a tie for 43rd place with a 5 over par score of 77. She played even par golf over her final 12 holes with one birdie, one bogey and nine more holes scored a par.

Florida State is paired with South Carolina and Ole Miss and will tee off in the second round at 9:20 a.m. on Saturday. The third round on Sunday is scheduled as a shotgun start.
