She helped lead Florida to its third straight team title behind her second consecutive individual tournament win. Filler currently leads the Gators in nearly every statistical category and ranks second in stroke average in the SEC with a 69.67. Filler is one of two golfers in the SEC (LSU’s Ingrid Lindblad) that has two solo victories this season.
Fresh off her first collegiate win last week, Filler did it again at The Ally. She became the 13th player in program history to win two events in a season with the last being Sierra Brooks in 2018 and the last Gator to win back-to-back since Maria Torres in 2017. The senior started the Gators final round push behind four consecutive birdies on holes 3-6. She made eight birdies today to total the tournament-leading 16.
The Palm Beach Gardens, Florida native shot a final round of 66 (-6) for her team-best eighth under par round this season and fifth out of six career rounds in the 60s at Old Waverly. Filler ended under-par for three of the four fall events. Her last three events she placed 1-1-T2.
The team victory at The Ally is the 31st all-time under head coach Emily Glaser; 32nd total as she was an assistant coach for a season in 2011-12. Florida last won three events in a season in 2015-16 and is the fifth occurrence under Glaser. It marks the most team titles since the 2019-20 season when the Gators last won by double-digits at the Allstate Sugar Bowl by 13.
Florida will begin the spring season at Therese Hession Regional Challenge in Palos Verdes, California from Feb. 4-6.
