The Gators have captured success at the Briar’s Creek Invitational, winning the event three consecutive years from 2015-17. Florida last appeared in the tournament in 2017. 


Florida finished third at the Gators Invitational to start the month of March. Maisie Filler led the Orange and Blue with a T3 finish followed by Paula Francisco in T8. The duo earned SEC weekly honors with Filler earning her fourth golfer of the week accolade and Francisco her first career freshman of the week nod. 

NO. 1

Florida women’s golfer Maisie Filler earned the No. 1 ranked player in the country by the NCAA Rankings on Feb. 21. She held the ranking for two weeks and is currently ranked No. 2.

Entering last weekend, ranked No. 2, Filler won her third tournament title of the season on Tuesday at the Moon Golf Invitational, in a field that featured 12 top-25 teams. Currently, her three wins are tied for the most in the nation. She is also the eighth Gator all-time to win three medalist honors in a season with Sierra Brooks being the most recent in 2018.

The victory was Filler’s third consecutive in stroke play tournaments as the spring opener was altered to match play only. She went 3-0 in the event with wins against three ranked teams; No. 4 UCLA, No. 8 Texas and No. 20 Pepperdine. 

She shot a 54-hole score of 207 (-9) for a three-shot victory. Filler recorded all three rounds (66-69-72) of par or better with an opening round of 66 (-6). Over her 54 holes, she made 35 pars and 14 birdies. She averaged 2.83 on par3s, 3.90 on par4s and 4.67 on par5s.
