TALLAHASEE, Fla. – The FSU men’s golf team parlayed two strong rounds at the Seminole Golf Course to win the 2009 Florida State Spring Break Invitational.
The Seminoles finished the event with an overall team-score of 26 under par (550) while Troy University came in second place after shooting a 12 under par final score of 564.
For Florida State, the second round of the event proved to be the one that sealed the victory. The Seminoles shot a staggering 20 under par for the day as All-American Matt Savage led the way with a nine under par 63 – the top score for all golfers. Florida State’s Brooks Koepka’s seven under par 65 was second-best.
Savage’s 12 under par 132 was the event’s best individual score. Koepka’s 11 under par 133 was good enough for second and FSU’s Wesley Graham, who played as an individual, posted the third-best score of seven under par 137.
Also playing as an individual, FSU’s Nicholas Smith finished in fifth place with a four under par score of 140.
Cameron Knight tied for 10th with a two under par overall score, Seath Lauer came in 12th with a one under par outing, and Drew Kittleson’s even par score of 144 was good enough for a tie for 13th place.
The Seminoles’ next event will take them cross country as they will participate in the Calloway Collegiate Match Play Championship in San Diego, Calif.
The three-day event begins March 22.
