Women’s Golf In 2nd At Ocean Course Invitational.
September 4, 2017
KIAWAH ISLAND, SC – Florida State senior All-American Morgane Metraux is in a tie for ninth place in the individual standings, and the Seminole women’s golf team is in second place in the team standings after two rounds of the season-opening Ocean Course Invitational at Kiawah Island. Metraux begins play in the final round on Tuesday nine strokes out of the individual lead as she plays for her fourth career individual championship. The Seminoles are only one stroke behind Ole Miss in the team standings as they fight to win their second consecutive season opener and seventh team championship in the last two seasons.
Ole Miss played two rounds of even par golf and inched into the team lead late in the second of Monday’s two rounds. The Rebels begin play in the third and final round with a total of 584 after finishing as the only squad in the 17-team field to play even par golf in the first and second rounds. The Rebels are led by Pi-Lillebi Hermansson who is in a tie for ninth in the individual standings with a two-round total of 146. She carded a 71 in the second round. Jennifer Kupcho of Wake Forest is the individual leader with a 9-under par score of 137. Kupcho has a two stroke lead over Aubree Jones of Mississippi State.
“I thought we put together two pretty good rounds to golf to start off our season,” said Head Coach Amy Bond. “The wind kicked up in the afternoon but we managed to keep our composure, played some really good holes and made some putts. Our goal is always to be in contention going into the final round and we’ve done that. There are a number of tightly bunched teams entering the final round; there is going to be some great competition on Tuesday.”
Metraux (Lausanne, Switzerland) played well as she carded identical scores of 73 in the first and second rounds. She totaled three birdies and one eagle in earning her first round score of 73. Metraux finished tied for the team lead with five birdies in the second half on the par 73 course.
Metraux has put herself in position to earn her seventh career top-10 finish with her start in the Ocean Course Invitational. She earned five consecutive top 10 finishes as a junior including individual championships at the Florida State Match-Up and The Dickson Intercollegiate during the spring of 2017. With an even par score, Metraux is also looking to earn her eighth under par score in her last 13 collegiate matches since the start of the fall 2016 season.
Senior Kayla Jones (Milton, Ga.), who is playing as a member of the Seminoles’ lineup for the 21st time in her career, is in a tie for 15th place with a two-round total of 147. She carded scores of 1-over par 74 in the first round and even par 73 in the second round. Jones birdied her final hole of the second round to pull the Seminoles within one stroke of Ole Miss in the team standings.
Jones is looking to earn her fifth career top-15 individual finish – and first since finishing in 14th place at the 3M Lady Jaguar Invitational during the spring of 2016. She was at or below par on 16 of her 18 holes including two birdies and was never more than one stroke over par in the second round.
Sophomore Amanda Doherty (Atlanta, Ga.) played the round of the day for the Seminoles as she carded a two-under par score of 70 in the second round. It was one of two under par rounds carded by the five Seminoles during the first 36 holes of the tournament. Doherty was spectacular over the second 18 holes of the day with a team-high tying five birdies and 16 holes played at par or better. She carded a series of three consecutive birdies to close out the roun and finished at 3-under par.
Freshman Kathleen Sumner (Charleston, S.C.) is in a tie for 25th place while senior Kim Metraux (Lausanne, Switzerland) is in a tie for 29th place individual standings.
Sumner, who is playing in her first match as Seminole, carded a 1-under par 72in the first round. She began her career well with a birdie on her first career hole and carded four birdies during her
first day of collegiate golf. Metraux carded an even par score of 73 in the first round and totaled seven birdies in her 36 holes played.
September 5, 2017
KIAWAH ISLAND, SC – Senior Morgane Metraux and sophomore Amanda Doherty finished tied for 10th in the individual standings, and the Seminole women’s golf team finished in second place in the team standings as play in the 2017 Ocean Course Invitational at the Kiawah Island Resort came to a close. Florida State finished three strokes behind NC State in the team title race marking the ninth time in its last 13 events that the Seminoles have finished in second place or better in an event.
NC State played the best team round of the final day of the event to defeat the Seminoles by three strokes for the championship. The Wolfpack were five strokes better than the Seminoles in round three – an advantage that allowed them to move from a tie for third place in the team standings after two rounds and into a position to win the championship. The two ACC teams battled during the entire third round before NC State took the lead late and held off the Seminoles to win the championship. Jennifer Kupcho of Wake Forest won the individual championship with a 12-under par score of 207.
With both Morgane Metraux and Doherty finishing in the top 10 of the individual standings, the Seminoles finished as one of only three teams in the event with multiple players in the top 10 of the 87-player field. Florida State was the only team in the field that had all five of its players to finish in the top-30 of the individual standings.
“I am proud of our team for finishing second in a tough event to begin the season,” said Head Coach Amy Bond. “We didn’t get off to a great start but I thought we finished well. We made a few too many mistakes but we learned a lot in our first event. It was good performance for having been in class and practice for only five days leading into the event. We are excited to have a few weeks off to work on a few things and then have the opportunity to defend our title at the Schooner Fall Classic.”
Sophomore Amanda Doherty (Atlanta, Ga.) carded a 1-under par score of 72 in the third round and finished in a tie for 10th place with a 220 total. She played the best golf among her teammates for the second consecutive round. She carded a 3-under par score of 70 in the second round and was four strokes under par over the course of the final 36 holes. In the third round, Doherty carded three birdies and 16 holes and par or better. She totaled two of her birdies on holes No. 16 and 18 – two of final four holes of the round to finish under par.
Doherty’s finish marked the fourth top-10 finish of her career. She has now finished in the top-10 two of her last seven events with a tied for seven place finish at The Dickson Intercollegiate during the spring of 2016. Doherty finished tied with Morgane Metraux in the individual standings marking the first time in her career that she has placed as Florida State’s leader in 13 career events as a Seminole.
Morgane Metraux (Lausanne, Switzerland) carded a 1-over par 74 in the final round and finished with a 1-over par tournament total of 220. She finished in a tie for 10th place in the individual standings. Metraux has now earned 10 top-10 career individual finishes. Her finish at the Ocean Course Invitational marked the sixth time in her last seven regular season events that she has earned a top-10 finish.
Freshman Kathleen Sumner (Charleston, S.C.), who was playing in her first career event, finished in a tie for 19th in the individual standings. She carded a 3-over par score of 76 in the third round and finished with a three-round total of 225. Sumner carded three birdies in the third round and seven for her first career event.
Seniors Kim Metraux (Lausanne, Switzerland) and Kayla Jones (Milton, Ga.) finished in a tie for 29th place with scores of 228. Metraux carded a 77 in the third and final round.
