(March 13, 2023) – On the latest episode of 15 Minutes With we caught up with Hartford Golf Club member and University of Florida star Maisie Filler. We talk about Filler’s career at Florida and the recent invitation she received to play in the 2023 Augusta National Women’s Amateur from March 29-April 1.
The Augusta National Women’s Amateur will begin at the Champions Retreat Golf Club with rounds one and two played on the 29th and 30th. The entire field will then play a practice round at Augusta National Golf Club on March 31 before the players that make the 36-hole cut play the final round on April 1.
Filler, a junior, has had a standout career at Florida. So far her season has been highlighted by a second place finish in September at The “Mo” Morial Invitational and since the recording of this episode in February she added another second place finish at the VyStar Credit Union Gators Invitational. Filler has also played in two LPGA Tour events, first the Pelican Championship in 2021 and then last year the ShopRite LPGA Classic where she made the cut.
