SUNSET, S.C. (seminoles.com) – Freshman Beatrice Wallin is in a tie for 13th place in the individual standings, and the Florida State Women’s Golf team is in a tie for eighth place in the team standings with one round remaining to be played at the Clemson Invitational at The Reserve at Lake Keowee. Wallin is only three strokes out of the top five of the individual standings and only five strokes behind the leaders, Micheala Williams of Tennessee and Julie McCarthy of Auburn, as she plays for her second consecutive top five individual finish.

The round was played from a shotgun start and in non-customary foursomes because of the likelihood of rain. A band of rain came through the area and halted play for 1:20.

Vanderbilt, which played the best team round of day (11 under par 277), took over sole possession of first place in the team standings. The Commodores lead second-place Auburn by eight strokes. The Commodores and the Tigers began the day in a tie for first place in the team standings. Tennessee’s Williams and Auburn’s McCarthy are the co-leaders with tow-round totals of 136. 12 golfers – including Florida State’s Wallin – are all within six strokes of Williams and McCarthy.

Florida State included four scores at 75 or better for the second consecutive day and is tied with Virginia Tech and Augusta for eighth place in the team standings. The Seminoles were led in the second round by junior All-American Amanda Doherty’s team-leading score of 71.

“We did a lot of things well today but we didn’t get all of our putts to fall,” said Head Coach Amy Bond. “Each of the players on our team is very encouraged by how they are hitting the ball. I am looking for us to make a few more putts tomorrow – my goal is for us to have the round of the day on Wednesday.

“Over the last two weeks we have been able to get some different players some tournament experience and that will be very helpful for us in the long run.”

Wallin continued to play stellar golf and has put herself in position for a top five finish with her 1-over par score of 73 in the second round. She totaled 14 holes scored at par with two birdies in the second round. Wallin was never more than 1 stroke above par and was as many as 1 stroke under par during her second set of 18 holes in this event.

Freshman Puk Lyng Thomsen continued to play well as she also carded a 1-over par score of 73 with three birdies. She strung together two birdies on holes No. 17 and 18 and finished her round at 2 strokes under par on her final eight holes. Thomsen closed the round with two birdies and four consecutive holes scored at par. She is in a tie for 26th place in the individual standings with a career-best 36-hole total of 144.

Doherty, who finished in a tie for 21st place in last week’s Augusta National Women’s Amateur, was the Seminoles’ top golf in the second round as she carded a 1-under par score of 71. After a bogey in her first hole of the afternoon (No. 6), she was nearly perfect during her remaining 17 holes as she carded 15 holes at par with two birdies. Doherty was 2-under par with two birdies on her final five holes.

Doherty, who began the day in a tie for 67th place in the individual standings, improved her placement by 26 positions and begins play in Tuesday’s final round in a tie for 41st place.

The Seminoles are paired with Illinois and Virginia Tech with an 8:09 a.m. tee time for Sandra Salonen. The Seminoles, Illini and Hokes will play from the first tee.
