Woad Finishes 3rd To Lead FSU at Moon Invitational

MELBOURNE, Fla. – Florida State’s Lottie Woad finished in third place with a 10 under par score of 206, and the Florida State Women’s Golf Team finished in 11th place in the team standings as play in the Moon Invitational on the Classic Course at the Suntree Country Club came to a close.  Woad’s final score of 206 tied her personal best, while her score vs. par of minus 10 ranked as a personal best in just the sixth tournament of her Florida State career. 

Woad’s third place finish marked her fifth top four individual finish in the first six events of her career.  She has now finished in a tie for first (Ivy Intercollegiate), third (Moon Invitational), tied for fourth three times (Cougar Classic, Landfall Tradition and the Collegiate Invitational) and in eighth once (Schooner Fall Classic) during her freshman season at Florida State.  She is a cumulative total of minus 32 below par as a Seminole. 

The Seminoles were led on the leader board in the third round by junior Charlotte Heath who carded a 5 under par score of 67, Woad who carded a 1 under par 71, and Alice Hodge who carded an even par 72.  The Seminoles carded a 9 under par team score of 279 in the final round of the tournament – the second-best score of the final round.  Michigan State, which finished in fourth place in the team standings, totaled a team score of 12 under par 276.  The Spartans finished with a 14 under par team total of 850.

LSU won the championship by a whopping margin of nine strokes over Northwestern.  The Lady Tigers finished 30 shots under par and led the team race from wire to wire in winning the title.  Leila Rines of Michigan State and Maribel Ting of Augusta finished as the co-medalists with identical scores of 13 under par 203. 

“We put our backs against the wall, and showed what we can do as we put up the second-best team round of the final day,” said Head Coach Amy Bond.  “As the conditions got harder, we got better.  Today’s round was a great team effort.  Now it’s time to regroup and have a couple of good weeks of practice before we play in the Augusta Invitational.”

In earning her second top-three career finish, Woad finished the event with scores of 66-69-71 for a 54-hole total of 206.  Her score of 206 tied her personal-best mark for a three round collegiate event.  She also carded a 206 in finishing in a tie for fourth place in the individual standings in the Cougar Classic — her first career event. …
