MACON, Ga. – After the second round of the Brickyard Collegiate Championship, Rowin Caron continues to lead the men’s golf team as the Seminoles are tied for seventh in the 14-team field. The team posted a 1-under 287 on the day at the par 72, 7175 yard Brickyard by Riverside.
“It was another perfect day for scoring and we did not take advantage of our opportunities,” said head coach Trey Jones. “The effort is there but we are simply not executing. I will be surprised if we don’t come out and execute better tomorrow.”
The sophomore Caron started the day with a bogey on the first hole, but fought the rest of the day to finish with a birdie on the 18th. He posted the same score from yesterday, a 1-under 71 and is tied for 13th.
Making a one stroke improvement and sitting tied for 17th is Jack Maguire. The freshman made only one bogey on the day and finished with a 1-under 71 with birdies on the 12th and 14th holes.
Making the biggest change was sophomore Hank Lebioda. He posted a six stroke improvement to finish the day with a 1-over 73 and is tied for 60th. After carding a 6-over on the back nine yesterday, the leftie finished the same nine holes at only 1-over.
Freshman Josh Lee combined four birdies with four bogeys to finish the day with an even par 72 and is tied for 31st. Freshman Cristobal Del Solar had a rough front nine by going 4-over from holes six to eight. He is tied for 60th after a 6-over 78 on Saturday.
Playing as an individual, freshman Anthony Alex is tied for 39th after scoring a 3-over 75.
Florida State tees off at 8:00 a.m. from the first hole on Sunday.
No. 23 Florida State is joined by No. 3 Georgia, No. 4 Georgia Tech, No. 13 GRU Augusta, No. 14 Virginia Tech, No. 27 USF, Boston College, Chattanooga, Furman, Georgia State, Gonzaga, Louisville, Mercer and Princeton.
