Adcock Earns Top Five Finish To Lead Seminole Men’s Golf Team To Seventh Place Finish At Kiawah Island

Sept. 9, 2003




KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. –
Junior Matt Adcock shot a career-low 68 in the second round and finished in a career-best tie for fifth place in the individual standings to lead the Florida State men’s golf team to a seventh place finish at the Cleveland Gold/Kiawah Island Intercollegiate at Turtle Point Golf Course. The event was shortened from three rounds to two after torrential rain forced the field to play only one round Monday.


John Holmes of Kentucky fired a 68 to help Kentucky to the team championship as the Wildcats outdistanced Georgia State by three strokes. The Seminoles finished second among three Atlantic Coast Conference teams in the event – three strokes behind Virginia and three strokes ahead of Maryland. Aron Price of Georgia Southern claimed individual medalist honors with a nine-under par score of 135. He finished seven strokes in front of Adcock.


Adcock (Apopka, Fla.) improved his standing by 18 positions as he carded a career-best 68 in Tuesday’s second round. His 142 score for 36-holes also ranks as her career best as does his tie for fifth place finish in the individual standings. Adcock’s previous best single round score of 69 came during the Mason Rudolph Championship during the fall of 2002 while his previous best finish of 11th came at the Seminole Intercollegiate during the spring of 2003.


Junior Mark Sestilio (Punta Gorda, Fla.) gained his first career top-10 finish as he carded a one-over par 73 in the second round to finish with an even par score of 144 for the two-round event. Sestilio had never finished higher than 20th place during his previous six tournaments as a Seminole.


Junior Rusty Mosley (Vidalia, Ga.) carded a one-over par 73 in the second round to finish with a 152 total. He finished in a tie for 36th place in the individual standings. Seminole senior Tim Vickers (Alpharetta, Ga.) and Gonzalo Ibarraran (Coahuila, Mexico) carded a personal tournament best 77 in the second round.


The event was the first for the Seminoles under head coach Trey Jones who was named the Head Men’s Golf Coach and Director of Golf Operations at Florida State in July. The Seminoles continue their fall schedule as travel to the Mason Rudolph Championship Sept. 22-23 in Nashville, Tenn.
