ST. LOUIS, Mo. –
Alison Curdt, a rising sophomore on the Florida State women’s golf team, is enjoying an outstanding summer after helping lead the Seminoles to the East Regional of the NCAA Tournament during the 2001 season. She earned medallist honors at the State Farm-A.L. Gustin Collegiate Open in June and finished in second place at the Missouri Women’s State Amateur Tournament that completed play on July 12.
Curdt is scheduled to compete at the Women’s Trans National Golf Association’s amateur national championship July 16-21 at the Fargo Country Club in Fargo, N.D. The Amateur Championship draws the best 144 amateurs from around the country to a two-day stroke play-qualifying format. Following stroke play, the entire field is divided into flights for match play. The top 64 qualify for championship flight play.
In addition, the St. Louis, Mo., native will compete for the Collegiate Players Tour National Championship at the Woodbridge Golf Club in Wylie, Texas, Aug. 13-15. She qualified to play in the championship based on her first place finish at the State Farm-A.L. Gustin Collegiate Open.
Curdt placed second by one stroke at the Missouri Women’s State Amateur Tournament which was played at the St. Joseph Country Club in St. Joseph, Mo. She finished second in the 54-hole event as she finished with a three-round total of 224 (76+75+73). She entered the final round down by seven strokes and made up six strokes over the final 18 holes to claim second place. Ellen Port, who won the event, was ranked 15th in the nation in the Golfweek/Titleist Amateur rankings at the time of the event.
Curdt participated in all 10 events for the Seminoles during her freshman season including the ACC Championship and NCAA East Regional. She shot a career-low score of even-par 72 in the third round of the Bryan National Collegiate during the spring of her freshman year.
