Monday February 24, 2014No. 16 Florida Women's Golf Takes Top-3 Spot After 36 Holes of Allstate Sugar Bowl

New Orleans, La.

Due to inclement weather canceling round one of the 2014 Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Championship, all teams competing played 36 holes at English Turn Golf & Country Club today. The No. 16 Florida women’s golf team sits in a solid third place after two rounds of golf, highlighted by freshman Maria Torres who matched a career-best 70 on the second 18 today, finishing three-under, T6 individually.

 

Five of the six Gators participating in the Allstate Sugar Bowl placed in the top-25 individually, making an impressive 42 birdies as a team. Florida senior Elcin Ulu fired a season-low 70 on the first 18 holes and rolled off a stellar seven birdies over two rounds today. Competing as an individual, freshman Karolina Vlckova paced the Gators with a team-high nine birdies on the day and placed T18 on the player leaderboard.

 

The Florida squad sits a manageable 10 strokes off the lead, just six strokes behind No.1 Southern Cal, and looks to the final round to compete for the top spot.

 

Head Coach Emily Glaser Says: “The girls played well today and I am proud of them. We let a few get away at the end; it seemed to be a bit of fatigue because it was a tough day. The course was really wet. We played lift, clean and place and this helped, but you still had to be precise with your contact. The team did a great job of managing their way around this course and it was a real team effort today. We are looking forward to being in the last group tomorrow.”
