WILMINGTON, N.C. (seminoles.com) – Senior Amelia Williamson is in a tie for seventh place in the individual standings, and the Florida State Women’s Golf Team is in a tie 13th place in the team standings after the first round of the Landfall Tradition at the Country Club of Landfall.  Williamson has put herself in position to earn her second consecutive top-10 placing after finishing in a tie for 10th place at the Jim West Challenge.  She begins play in Saturday’s second round only four strokes out of the individual lead.

Michigan, with three players in the top-20 of the individual standings, is in first place in the team standings.  The Wolverines hold a one-stroke lead over Virginia and a three-stroke lead over South Carolina, Texas and Clemson.  The top five teams in the standings are separated by just two strokes.  Justine Fournand of South Carolina holds the individual lead as she totaled a first round score of 67.  She is just one shot ahead of Inja Fric of NC State and Amanda Sambach of Virginia.

Led by Williamson, the Seminoles settled into their round and played much better golf after making the turn.  The Seminoles were a total of nine strokes over par on their front nine and were just six strokes over par on their back nine.  Florida State’s quintet of players combined for six birdies on the back nine after carding just four on their front nine.

“The conditions got the best of us today,” said Head Coach Amy Bond.  “The great thing is we have the opportunity to learn from today and be better tomorrow. I look for us to rebound and get back into the mix.”

Williamson continued to play the best golf of her career as she finished the first round with a score of 71.  She totaled three birdies and 16 holes scored at par or better.  Williamson finished her round at 2 under par on her final 10 holes and was never more than one stoke over par during the round.   Her third birdie of the round on hole No. 15 pushed her under par where she stayed for the remainder of the round.

Williamson has now carded four consecutive rounds at 71 or better since finishing with a 69 in the first round of the Jim West Challenge.  She has carded 14 consecutive rounds at 75 better – the longest streak of her collegiate career – dating back to the 2021 NCAA Louisville Regional Championship.  Williamson is averaging 72.07 strokes per round since carding a 68 in the first round of the regional championship.  Williamson’s score helped the Seminoles win a regional championship for the first time in school history.

Florida State will play with Purdue and Maryland in Saturday’s second round.  The Seminoles will tee off with the Boilermakers and the Terps at 9:15.
