TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 8 Florida State men’s golf team leads after the first day of Seminole Intercollegiate at the Southwood Golf Course in Tallahassee. All of the Seminoles finished at even par or better in the first round. Although the teams started play at 7:30, it was postponed for 70 minutes due to lightning in the area. The 14 teams will play 18 holes each day for a 54 hole total to determine the team and individual champions.

 “I was very pleased with the way we came out, straight from the first two boxes,” said head coach Trey Jones. “You’re concerned if they’re going to come out too anxious, too fired-up to play and not do what they need to do, but they came out and made birdies right off of the gate. Then during the middle of the round when it got tough, the guys made some good putts and the ones who weren’t playing well made a run late and the guys that were playing well early did some things to keep their rounds together. So 1-5, I’m pleased with their starts today.”

 Senior Seath Lauer (Huntington, Ind.) and junior Drew Kittleson (Scottsdale, Ariz.) are currently leading the Seminoles at two under par (69).  Sophomore Wesley Graham (Port Orange, Fla.) and freshman Michael Hebert (Orlando, Fla.) both posted a one under par, 70.

 “Obviously I just need to take it one step at a time,” said Lauer. “The weather is kind of a factor, we’ll see how it is but the course is playing rather easy because of the conditions we saw. Hopefully over the next few days we’ll play better and take advantage of playing on our home course.”

 The No. 1 player in the nation, sophomore Brooks Koepka (Wellington, Fla.) shot an even par, 71.

 Playing as individuals in the tournament is freshman Kyle Cobb (Tallahassee, Fla.). The duo both posted impressive scores with Letson one under par (70) and Cobb even (71).

 Florida State tees off at 1:20 p.m. on Saturday at Southwood Golf Club. The tournament plays through Sunday. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend FSU’s only home golf tournament.
