W. Golf Moves Into Top 5 At Clemson Invitational

SUNSET, S.C. (seminoles.com) – Florida State sophomore Charlotte Heath is in a tie for 11th place in the individual standings, and the No. 14 Seminole Women’s Golf Team is in fifth place in the team standings with one round remaining to be played in the Clemson Invitational at The Reserve at Koewee.  The Seminoles improved their team standing by five positions as they improved their team score by seven strokes as compared to their first round total.

Florida State’s improvement of five places in the team standings was the best team improvement of the day, along with the five position jumps by Michigan State and Maryland.  The Seminoles’ team score of 297 was the third best of the day among the 18 competing teams – just one stroke behind the team scores of 296 by Kentucky and Michigan State.

Kentucky moved up three positions in the team standings and is in first place in the team standings.  The Wildcats lead the Spartans by two strokes.  Florida State is just two strokes behind LSU (who is in fourth place) and just eight strokes behind Kentucky and will work to earn their fourth consecutive top three team finish of the spring season on Sunday.  Brooke Biermann of Michigan State and Annabell Fuller of Florida are tied for first place in individual standings with 1 under par scores of 143.

“They handled the conditions really well today,” said Head Coach Amy Bond.  “The conditions were much harder today than they were yesterday, but they clearly executed much better today than they did yesterday.  They played a really good round of golf today.”

Heath improved her score by four strokes from the first round as she finished at even par in the second round.  She has a two-round total of 146 and is only five strokes behind the co-leaders.  Heath played well in Saturday’s second round with two birdies and 16 holes played at par or better.  She was 1 under par over her final 17 holes of the round with two birdies, one bogey and 14 holes scored at par.

Heath’s improvement of 31 positions in the individual standings was tied for the best upward jump of any of the 101 golfers in the field. 

“I think staying in the moment was key as the wind was swirling and gusting a lot,” said Heath.  “I holed some good par putts and made a lot of up and downs.”

Heath’s score of 72 was her sixth score of 72 or better this spring – including her second score of par in her last three rounds.  She has earned three top 15 finishes this spring and will play for her third top-10 finish on Sunday.

Senior Amelia Williamson carded a 2 over par score of 72 and moved into a tie for 25th in the individual standings with a two round total of 148.  She improved her individual standing by 17 positions after finishing the first round in a tie for 42nd place with a score of 76.

“They have put themselves in position to have a chance in Sunday’s final round,” said Bond.
