BROWNS SUMMIT, N.C. –
Florida State All-American Caroline Westrup finished in a tie for 12th place in the individual standings and the Seminole women’s golf team finished in 14th place in the team standings as play in the Bryan National Collegiate came to a close on the Bryan Park Champions Course. Westrup’s finish was her fifth top 15 individual finish but only the second time she had not finished in the top three of an event in which she had completed play this spring.
Purdue, which played with only four players instead of the usual five in the starting line-up, won the team title as it defeated second place Florida by seven strokes. The Boilermakers finished 11 strokes ahead of No. 1 ranked Duke – which finished in fourth place in the team standings. The Seminoles, who are ranked 24 in this week’s Golf Week / NGCA National poll, finished out of the top 10 in the team standings in an event for only the second time in five events this spring.
Westrup (Ahus, Sweden) finished the event with an uncharacteristic 78 in the final round and an eight-over par 224 score for the 54-hole event. She carded an even-par 72 in the first round and a two-over par 74 in the second round. Westrup’s team-leading tied for 12th place finish marked the fifth time in five events that she had finished as the Seminoles’ leader this spring.
Junior Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) led the Seminoles in the final round with a five-over par 77 – her best round of the event. She carded identical scores of 78 in the first two rounds and finished with a 237 total for the three-day, high-powered event – her third best tournament score vs. par (+21) this spring. Junior Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) finished tied for 48th place with a 234 total for the event. She finished as the Seminoles’ second ranking player for the fourth consecutive event.
