Tallahassee, Fla. – The 19th-ranked Virginia women’s golf moved up two spots to finish the second round of the Florida State Match-Up Tournament tied for sixth place. The 12-team field is competing at the Don Veller Seminole Golf Course in Tallahassee, Fla.

Virginia freshman Katharine Patrick (Houston, Texas) posted UVA’s best second round score, shooting 2-under 70. She moved up into a tied for 12th place along with Cavalier senior Lauren Coughlin (Chesapeake, Va.) at 4-over 148. Coughlin posted a second round score of even par 72.

UVA freshman Anna Redding (Concord, N.C.), competing as an individual, is in ninth place overall at 2-over 146. She shot 75 during the second round after opening with a 71. Junior Lauren Diaz-Yi (Thousand Oaks, Calif.) is also competing as an individual. She dropped back to 28th place at 151 after matching Redding’s opening round total.
In addition to traditional collegiate scoring, the tournament features a unique team scoring component. The participating teams are paired in twosomes during the first two rounds and play in threesomes in the final round. The twosomes consist of partners playing together. The match-up portion of the tournament is determined by taking the best four scores from each of the partners and the lowest scores to make up the match-up partner total.
At the end of the tournament, the partners with the lowest score will win the Match-Up championship. The team and individual champions will also be crowned.
The final round takes place Sunday.
