Fargo, N.D. – Sophomore Alison Curdt, a member of the Florida State women’s golf team, advanced to the third round of the Trans National Amateur Championship this week before being eliminated from the competition during the first round of match play. Curdt played well during the first two rounds of stroke play but was defeated by Katie Jacobson in the first flight of the match play draw. Jacobson led Curdt by two holes with one to play after the two had completed play on the 17th hole.
Match play scores are calculated on a hole-by-hole basis. The player who holes her ball in fewer strokes wins an individual hole. A match is won when one player is ahead by a greater number of holes then number of holes remaining to be played.
Curdt carded an 82 in the first round of stroke play on Monday and improved by five strokes to shoot a five-over par 77 in round two. She was one of 144 participants who qualified to play for the championship of the tournament. Match play began Wednesday with the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds being played Thursday and Friday. The championship round of the first through fifth flights is scheduled for Friday while the final round of the championship flight is Saturday.
The event is being held at the Fargo Country Club.
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.
