NEW LONDON, N.C. –
The Florida State University men’s golf team is tied for seventh in the team standings and Seminole teammates Matt Adcock and Tim Vickers are tied for 22nd in the individual standings after the first round of the 50th Annual Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Golf Championship at Old North State Club at Uhwarrie Point. The Seminoles are tied with Maryland and are only eight strokes behind Duke who is currently in fourth place in the team standings.


The first round of the event was played in a steady rain after the start of the round was delayed by 90 minutes because of heavy rain. North Carolina is in first place in the team standings with a 290 score and Bill Haas of Wake Forest is on top of the individual leader board with a three-under par score of 69 after the first 18 holes.


Adcock (Apopka, Fla.) and Vickers (Alpharetta, Ga.) are part of a group of eight players who are tied for 22nd with identical scores of five-over par 77. Both Seminole golfers played the course with identical scores on the front nine (38) and the back nine (39). One of the players Adcock and Vickers are tied with is Clemson’s D.J. Trahan – the No. 1 ranked individual golfer in the nation by GolfWeek Magazine. Both Adcock and Vickers are playing in their first ACC Championship tournaments.


Seminole freshman Adam Wallace (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.) is tied for 30th after carding a first round score of 78. Wallace, who is averaging 75.88 strokes in 16 rounds during his first year playing collegiate golf, is also playing in his first ACC Tournament.


Rusty Mosley (Vidalia, Ga.), the only Seminole who has played in a previous ACC Championship tournament, is the fourth ranking Seminole with a seven-over par score of 79. He is in a tie for 34th-place. Sophomore Mark Sestilio (Punta Gorda, Fla.) is in a tie for 40th place in the individual standings with an 11-over par score of 83.


Saturday’s second round of 18 holes begins at 8:30 a.m. Florida State plays in the first group along with Maryland and NC State. Florida State is looking to better its sixth place finish in the ACC Championship during the 2002 season.
