While the Florida State University men’s golf team may not have had the start it would have liked to the 2006 Seminole Intercollegiate, there is hope for the host school after Sunday’s (March 5) first round. The Seminoles are in tenth place after round one at Golden Eagle Country Club with a team score of 295, but sit just five shots back of fifth-place Northwestern.

East Tennessee State leads the tournament after 18 holes with a team composite of 282. Coastal Carolina’s Dustin Johnson shot the low round of the day with an 18-hole total of 66.

Florida State’s low man was freshman Nicholas Smith (Ocala, Fla.) as he opened up with a 72 to put him in a tie for 16th place. A pair of Seminoles are just a shot back of Smith in a tie for 24th. Sophomore Jonas Blixt (Hammaro, Sweden) and classmate Tommy Rymer (Hastings, Minn.) started with a 73. Tying for 56th was junior Torstein Nevestad (Oslo, Norway) and freshman Matt Savage (Louisville, Ky.) at 77.

Play resumes Monday with the second round teeing off at 8 a.m.
