TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – Florida State junior Beatrice Wallin, the leading golfer in the ACC with a career-low 70.40 stroke average this spring, has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Golfer of the Month. During the month of March she won her first career event, averaged 69.83 strokes in six rounds and was 13 strokes under par. She earned the award for the first time in her career.
Wallin won the individual championship at the Pinetree Collegiate for her second victory of the spring 2021 season as she tied the school record for a single round score with a 7 under par 65 in the second round of the Pinetree. In winning the individual championship, she led Florida State to the team championship in the event.
Wallin totaled three of six scores (65, 67, 69) in the 60’s, was never more than two strokes over par in the 108 holes she played in Seminoles’ two events in the month of March, carded 30 birdies and was Florida State’s team leader in the final standings in both events.
Wallin enters next week’s ACC Championship with a career scoring average of 72.05 – the second lowest in school history. Her current scoring average of 70.40 is currently the lowest stroke average for a single season in school history.
Wallin finished in a tie for 10th place in the Second Annual Augusta National Women’s Amateur Championship on April 3. She became the first ANWA participant to finish in the top-10 during both years of its two- year history.
Wallin is one of 15 candidates for the ANNIKA Award as the nation’s top collegiate player.
