The UF women's golf team qualified for a No. 14 seed at the Hooters Match Play Championship in Orlando and will take on Texas A&M today.

Jessica Yadloczky's play has her in the top 15, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Gators from slipping into a tie for 13th place.

She shot even par for her first two rounds. Her 1 under par in the second round nullified her 1 over par in the first round.

The talent-laden field, which includes seven of the top 10 ranked teams, prevented UF from eyeing the top of the leaderboard and getting a higher seed.

The freshman duo of Andrea Watts and Evan Jensen continued to be consistent. Watts shot 4 over par in the first round and lowered that score to 1 over par in the second round.

Jensen shot a near mirror-opposite score. She shot 1 over in the first round and saw her score bubble up to a 5 over par.

One reason for her ballooned score is the number of bogeys she shot on the back nine. In the second round, Jensen suffered a three-hole stretch where she shot four strokes over par.

She double-bogeyed the 13th hole after birdying it the previous round.

Watts had the same birdie-to-double-bogey reversal of fortune on the 16th hole.

The one-stroke difference has Watts tied for 35th and Jensen right below her, tied for 42nd.

Lauren Uzelatz, who didn't play in last weekend's tournament, shot 18 over par for her two rounds. She sits at 76th.

Brittany Nelson, the fifth player in the lineup, shot 23 over par and is in 80th place.
