W. Golf: Woad Ties School Record With 65 At Schooner

NORMAN, Okla. – Freshman Lottie Woad tied the school record with a 5 under par score of 65 and is in a tie for third place in the individual standings, and the Florida State Women’s Golf Team is in first place in the team standings after the first round of the Schooner Fall Classic at the Belmar Golf Course.  Playing in just her second collegiate event, Woad was 4 under par on her final three holes with one eagle and two birdies, to finish her fourth career round at 65.  During the round she totaled four birdies, one eagle and 17 holes scored a par or better.  She is just one stroke behind Clemson’s Chloe Holder and Crystal Wang of Illinois who carded scores of 6 under par 64.

Florida State’s team score of 13 under par 267 established a school record. The score vs. par of 13 under is just five strokes off of the team record.  The score of 267 is the best score by three strokes in school history.

Florida State moved into the team lead as three Seminoles – Woad, Charlotte Heath and Alice Hodge – all carded birdies on their final holes of the afternoon.  The three birdies allowed the Seminoles to move ahead of Oklahoma, the host school for the tournament, which had led the team standings for the majority of the first round.  The Seminoles enter the second round with a one stroke lead over the Sooners.  Virginia Tech and Clemson are tied for third in the team standings.

“We played a really, really good round of golf today,” said Head Coach Amy Bond.  “The expectation was that the wind was going to kick up – but it didn’t kick up as hard as it could have.  Because of that, the course became very scoreable.   We took advantage of the holes we could, did what we needed to on the hard holes, and snuck in a couple of surprise birdies.

“Jacqui (Putrino) played a great first college round.  The wind is supposed to kick up tomorrow.  We just have to take advantage when we can.”

Woad was nearly flawless throughout the round in becoming the first Seminole to card a 65 since Alice Hodge totaled a 65 in the third round of the 2022 NCAA Tallahassee Regional Championship at the Seminole Legacy Golf Course.  She is just the ninth player in school history to card a score of 65.  The score has been achieved 10 times in school history.

Woad played especially strong golf on her back nine as she totaled a 5 under par total.  She totaled three birdies and her first career eagle in tying the school record.  Woad was five under par on her final seven holes of the round.

Woad was one of four Seminoles who finished the round under par.  Woad (5 under par 65), Heath (3 under par 67), Hodge (3 under par 67) and Putrino (2 under par 68) helped the Seminoles finish with a 13 under par team score of 267.  The 13 under par score is just five strokes off of the school record of 18 under par which came during the first round of the 2021 Valspar Augusta Invitational.  The Seminoles’ score of 267 in Saturday’s round is the best single round team score by three strokes in school history.

Overall, this was a great team effort,” said Bond.  Hopefully we can keep up the team effort for the rest of the weekend.”
