Freshman Beaty Leads Seminole Men’s Golf Team At Gary Koch Intercollegiate

Oct. 15, 2001

TAMPA, Fla. –
Florida State University freshman Eric Beaty shot an even-par 72 in Monday’s second round and moved into a tie for 19th place in the individual standings after the second round of the Gary Koch/Cleveland Golf Intercollegiate at the Old Memorial Golf Course. Beatty lead a Seminole charge in the second round as he and junior Brad Lusenhop shot matching scores of 72 as Florida State moved into a tie for ninth place in the team standings.

Beaty, who is in the Seminoles’ starting lineup for the third time during his just-beginning career, shot an even par 72 in round two after carding a three-over par 75 in the first round. He has shot 75 or better in six of his eight rounds this fall. He begins the third round of play in 19th place and is only 12 strokes off the pace set by Camilo Villegas of Florida.

Junior Brad Lusenhop also played well in round two as he matched Beatty with an even-par 72. After an uncharacteristic five-over par 77 in the first round, Lusenhop gained 19 spots in the individual standings and begins round three in a tie for 38th-place.

Junior Matt Ackley, who is competing in his first tournament since the spring of 2000, shook off the rust and played well in both rounds. He was the third highest ranking Seminole following the second round after shooting a pair of four-over par 76’s.

The Seminoles, who were in a tie for 12th-place in the team standings following the first round, shot a season-best team round of 294 and moved up three spots during the second round.

Villegas shot a competitive course record 62 in the second round to lead Florida to the top of the team standings heading into the third round. He birdied 10 holes and parred the other eight en route to his course record score. Florida shot a two-round total of 565 and leads second place Kentucky by 14 strokes. No. 1 ranked Texas Christian is in third place, 15 stokes behind the Gators.

The tournament concludes Tuesday with a third and final round of 18 holes.
