Kittleson Shoots Three Under To Lead FSU In Day One At Seminole Intercollegiate

March 6, 2009




            Tallahassee, Fla.The Seminole golf team opened day one of the 2009 Seminole Intercollegiate by shooting four over par to put the squad in a tie for fourth place following the opening round. Florida State was led by Drew Kittleson who shot a three under 69 to keep the team within four strokes of tournament leader Ole Miss, who posted even par for the day.

 

          “We had a good round by Drew Kittleson today despite the fact he did not participate in the practice round Thursday due to illness,” said Trey Jones. “Drew played as good a round as I have seen in a while.

         

          “Being four shots back versus good competition leaves us little room for error. We need to play a good round Saturday to put ourselves in position where we want to be, leading the tournament.”

 

          Kittleson was the only Seminole to shoot under par but Matthew Savage had a strong round as well shooting a one over 73. Cameron Knight and Seth Lauer both shot a 75 while Brooks Koepka shot a 76.

 

          “Matt played well he just didn’t finish well,” said Jones. “The other three guys have to do better than shoot three over on our own course. We need more from two juniors and a talented freshman. Our success will be determined by how those guys bounce back over the next 36 holes.”

 

          The 2009 Seminole Intercollegiate continues Saturday at Golden Eagle Country Club at noon. Florida State will be among the first teams to tee off on Saturday as the squad looks to cut their four stroke deficit on day two.
