Sunday March 16, 2014Hedberg Finishes Top-5 as No. 16 Gators Take Eighth at 2014 SunTrust Women's Invitational

Gainesville, Fla.

With a season-low tournament score (216), a season-best T5 finish and a tournament-high 12 birdies, junior Camilla Hedberg highlighted the 2014 SunTrust Gator Women’s Invitational for the No. 16 Florida women’s golf team. The UF squad finished with a team score of 892 and took eighth out of the 14 teams that competed.

 

In the first home tournament of her collegiate career, freshman Karolina Vlckova finished T13 on the individual leaderboard. Vlckova fired a 69 in round one, followed by solid rounds of 74 and 76 to total 219 (+9) and tally her third top-25 finish of her freshman campaign.

 

Arizona shot a tournament-team-low 285 in the final round to climb two spots and claim the 2014 SunTrust Gator Women’s Invitational title. Miami’s Daniela Darquea carded a stellar 67 (-3) in the final round to earn the individual victory. Darquea finished the tournament at 4-over (214).

 

Head Coach Emily Glaser Says: “It was a hard week. Obviously, it didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to. We played a little better each day, but we really got behind the eight ball on the first day and it was hard to recover after that. We’ll take the positives from this week and keep getting better as we move closer to the postseason.”

 

“The first day we came out real slow. That was probably the most nervous I’ve seen the team all year and we got a little ahead of ourselves in the expectation department. We have a lot of young players on our team that played their first home tournament and it got to us a little bit. But, sometimes you can’t learn from that unless you go through it and that’s what we’ll take from this week.”

 

“I’m proud of the way Camilla played and the position she put herself in heading into the final round today. It’s been awhile for her since she’s been in the hunt for a tournament title, but she’s definitely that type of player: she’s a two-time All-American and a very seasoned player. She’s been working really hard and deserved to be in the position she was in today. We’ll take a lot of positives from her performance this weekend.”
