SAN MARCOS, Tex. (seminoles.com) – Sophomore Amelia Williamson is in a tie for 21st place in the individual standings, and the No. 13 Florida State Women’s Golf Team is in a tie for 10th place in the team standings after two rounds of the Jim West Challenge at the Kissing Tree Golf Course. Williamson carded scores of 72-68 for a career-best 36-hole score of 140 and is only four strokes out of the individual lead heading into the final round of the tournament on Monday.

Texas Tech and Ole Miss are tied for first in the team standings with 18 holes remaining to be played in the Seminole’ third of four fall tournaments. The Red Raiders and the Rebels hold an eight-stroke lead over Miami in the race for the team championship. The Seminoles, who finished with a team score of minus seven in the first two rounds, are one of 13 teams in the field of 15 who finished with under par team scores on the first day of play.

“The goal this week was to get this group to step up,” said Head Coach Amy Bond. “We showed signs of stepping up but we didn’t continue it through 36 holes. In the fall, it’s good to struggle because it shows us what we have to work on in order to succeed in the spring. I’d like to see us shoot the round of the day on Monday and leave the state of Texas with a good taste in our mouths.”

Williamson, who carded her season-low score of 3 under par 68 in the second round, carded seven birdies and just three holes over par in the first two rounds of the event. In carding her near career-best score of 68 in the second round, she was below par the entire round after earning a birdie on her first hole of the afternoon. With three birdies on her final holes, she moved to four under par to close the round and put herself in contention for the best finish of her Florida State career.

Williamson will play the final round of the event looking to better her career-best finish of tied for 20th at the 2019 ACC Championship.

Sophomore Puk Lyng Thomsen is in a tie for 25th place in the individual standings with scores of 67-74 for a two round total of 141. Her score of 67 in the first round is the best of her Florida State career and was two strokes better than her score of 69 in the third round of the NCAA Auburn Regional on May 8, 2019. In earning her career-best score, Thomsen carded a career-high seven birdies and finished with only one hole scored above par.

Thomsen was as many as five strokes under par in the first round.

Sophomore Beatrice Wallin is in a tie for 33rd place with a two-round total of 143, while freshman Elle Johnson is in a tie for 43rd place with a total of 145. Johnson who is competing in her first collegiate event, carded a 1 under par score of 71 in her first collegiate round and finished the day with scores of 71-74.

The Seminoles will close the tournament with a shotgun start beginning Monday at 9:30 a.m. (ET) and will play with UNLV and Houston.
