Schneider Captures Women’s Stroke Play Title

By Mark Cardon

Ericka Schneider, a graduate of Lakewood Ranch High School, won the 2012 Florida Women’s Stroke Play Championship, firing a tournament total of 4-under par 212 at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando last weekend.

The Manatee County resident, who will be a senior at Ole Miss in the fall, prevailed over the field of 67 players to capture the tournament.

In the first round, Schneider grabbed the lead after her impressive four-under par 68, and followed up with a second round two-under par 70 extending her lead by three heading into the final round.

In the final round, Schneider’s lead narrowed after two bogeys placing her only one-stroke ahead of Kristine Odaiyar of Ocala. She quickly regained her two-stroke lead by making a birdie on No. 13. She finished two-over par for the day.

This is the second major Florida Women’s title for Schneider. Last August, she teamed with Bradenton’s Wendi Golden to capture the Florida Women’s Golf Association’s 21st Four-Ball Stroke Play Championship in Vero Beach. The duo turned in a two-round total of 133 for a four-shot victory.

Golden is now the Executive Director of the Greater Sarasota Junior Golf association. As a junior at Ole Miss, the long hitting Schneider played in nine tournaments, including the NCAA Central Regional.

She was fourth on the team with a 76.63 stroke average and earned two top-20 finishes.
