No. 10 W. Golf Finishes Runner-up in Collegiate Invitational

GUADALAJARA, Mexico – No. 10 Florida State placed second as a team in the Collegiate Invitational at Guadalajara Country Club. Top individual finishes included Charlotte Heath (T4) and Lottie Woad (T4). This is Heath’s fourth top 10 finish of the 2022-23 season and Woad’s fifth as a freshman newcomer. 

Junior Charlotte Heath gained another top-10 finish in her 23rd tournament start as a Seminole at the Collegiate Invitational. It is the 12th top-10 finish of her collegiate career. Heath shot even-par in the final round and totaled an even-par 216 for the tournament.

With the resume of round two, Heath found herself off to a great start at 1-under through five holes on the back-nine. She struggled in the closing of the round, shooting 3-over in her last four holes. A 2-over 38, her highest scoring nine of the tournament, pushed her back to a tie for third place. 

Although the final round was just moments later, Heath flipped her game around and shot 1-under on the front-nine after birdying her opening hole. She shot 1-over on her final nine to secure another impressive round at even-par. 

Heath led the Seminoles in par 5 scoring, averaging a 4.83 (-2), and in birdies, totaling eight for the three rounds.

Freshman Lottie Woad competed in her first spring season tournament for the Seminoles in Guadalajara, securing a T4 finish with an even-par 216 total for the event.

Woad shot her lowest round of the Collegiate Invitational with the completion of round two Monday morning. Her bogeyless two nines combined for a 3-under par 69 with birdies on holes No. 2, No. 5, and No. 10. 

Round three for Woad was off to a shaky start after posting a 3-over par front-nine. She quickly recovered with a birdie at the turn to the back-nine to get back to 1-over for the tournament. Woad continued her consistent play with seven straight pars and a birdie on her final hole to shoot a 1-over par 73 in the final round. 

Woad led the entire 60-player field in pars, totaling 41 for three rounds. 

Senior Amelia Williamson saw an immense improvement on the back-nine in round three, which was deemed to be the setback to her otherwise phenomenal play in the last two rounds, and shot a 1-over par 37. 

Williamson combined her best two nines of the tournament to shoot her lowest score of the Collegiate Invitational with a 2-over par 74 to finish T23 at 10-over par.

Junior Alice Hodge was off to an immaculate start on the second 27-hole day. Through 16 holes,…
