Carlton Kuhlo is one of the Seminoles’ rising stars who is beginning to play the best golf of her career as the postseason approaches. She made two of the biggest shots of her Florida State career late in the third round of the Marsh Landing Invitational is preparing with her teammates for the upcoming ACC Championships. Kuhlo sat down with seminoles.com between rounds of the Marsh Landing tournament and discussed what’s in her bag, what’s on her bag and what she marks her golf balls with.
What is your favorite club and why?
My Favorite club is my 8 iron because I always hit it solid.
You can carry 14 clubs in your bag. What is your system for how you fill your bag with different types of clubs? My woods always go at the top of my bag, everything else has a mind of its own and just goes in the bag.
What type of ball do you use (more carry, less spin, etc.) and how do you mark them for each round?
I use a Titleist Pro V1 every round and mark it with a blue whale or just one dot.
Does the mark have any significant meaning? How long have you been marking your golf balls that way?
Yes, because I really like whales so it makes me happy. I started to use the whale because I got a stencil to draw it.
What have you put on the outside of your bag as decorations?
I have ribbon tied on my handle and a pink breast cancer ribbon by my name.
Do you carry anything inside of your bag for good luck? How long have you carried that particular item? Where did you get it? Who did you get it from?
No I do not carry anything for good luck.
How long have you been playing with the set of clubs that are in your bag right now?
I just got these clubs at the beginning of this spring semester.
How do you mark your golf balls on the green? Do you carry a specific coin? Marker?
I usually use a quarter or whatever I can find in my bag at that time.
What is your career low round score? Where and when did you achieve it?

Do you have any career holes-in-one?
No I don’t not have any … yet.
