Weather affected the third round of the Chevron Championship and Florida State sophomore Lottie Woad only got through 13 holes before play was suspended.


Just two weeks after winning the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, Lottie Woad finds herself in the thick of the action at The Chevron Championship, her first professional major championship. She is currently 4 under and T10, just four shots off the lead.

After shooting a 1-under 71 in the opening round of her first professional major, the Florida State sophomore felt even more comfortable with Carlton Woods on Friday. She recorded five birdies during her round. True to form, Woad was excellent with her irons, hitting 15 greens on Friday.

“It’s definitely been a whirlwind. I haven’t really had a chance to let Augusta sink in,” Woad said Friday. I just came straight here. I’ve obviously gained a lot of confidence from Augusta, so I’m trying to use that this week.”

At one point in her round, Woad was just one shot off the lead, but Nelly Korda reached 7-under, three shots better than Woad after 36 holes.

Woad has learned some valuable lessons in recent weeks.

“I think it’s taking some getting used to having to aim away from the pins because you definitely had to do that at Augusta and there are certain pins that you absolutely can’t go on, and the same here, so getting used to moving my target and not just go the pins, which you can do in college, you can just go every pin, and usually the greens are pretty soft.

Woad achieved the first goal of the week: making the cut. She is currently ranked No. 3 in the Golfweek/ Women’s Rankings.

“I’m feeling good. I’m playing well. I would probably give it a pretty high grade. I was trying to make sure I made it to the weekend. That was kind of my goal for the week,” Woad said. “I didn’t know exactly which position, but I’m in a good position now, so I’ll just keep trying to move up.”
