CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Florida State University sophomore Whitney Brummett shot a one-over par 73 and is in a tie for 11th place in the individual standings after the first round of the Lady Tar Invitational at Finley Golf Course. Brummett is only one stroke out of the top ten and only three strokes behind the co-leaders who carded two-under par scores of 70. The Seminoles are in 11th place in the team standings. The round was played in steady downpour from weather from Hurricane Tammy which dumped record-amounts of rain the Chapel Hill area.
No. 1 ranked Duke, the defending national champions, hold the team lead after the first round with a score of 296. Duke's Anna Grzebian and Virginia's Leah Wigger are tied for first in the individual standings after carding identical scores of two-under par 70. Only 10 of the 96 golfers in the event finished the round with scores at even par or better.
Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) played well throughout the round as she carded three birdies and 14 holes of par or better golf. She played her first 12 holes of the round at par or better. Brummett played her best round of golf since the first round of the spring 2005 Ryder/Florida Championship when she carded a career-low 72.
Seminole senior Caroline Larsson (Danderyd, Sweden) is in a tie for 21st place after carding a four-over par 76. She, too, played well with 13 of the 18 holes at par or better with two birdies. Larsson played the final 16 holes of her round at two-over par.
Junior Kayla Shaul (Cumming, Ga.) and sophomore Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) shot identical scores of 83 while junior Jaclyn Burch (Wildwood, Mo.) carded an 85. Shaul is competing in her first event as a member of the Seminoles' varsity lineup.
The second round of 18 holes is scheduled to begin Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m.
