TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Auburn rallied from a one-stroke deficit entering the final round and defeated North Carolina by five strokes to claim the team championship at the Seminole Intercollegiate men’s golf tournament at Golden Eagle Country Club. The Tigers were tied for the team led after the first round, dropped to second behind the Tar Heels after the second round and won the event in the final round as they outscored the Tar Heels by six strokes to win the event. The individual competition was won by East Tennessee State’s Rhys Davies who finished with a 210 total for the 56-hole event to claim medalist honors in the event for the second time in the last three seasons.

Florida State, the host school, finished in third in the final team standings.
