Eugene, Ore. — While the 13th-ranked FSU men’s golf team may not know exactly where it sits in the standings following its second round at the NCAA Golf Championships, the squad does know that it will have its work cut out to get back into the top 15 on Sunday. The Seminoles ended their round in 27th-place after posting a 14-over Saturday at the Eugene Country Club in Oregon.
After a solid start on the front nine where they shot just over parr, the Seminoles struggled after the turn. As a team, FSU shot nine-over on the back nine. The 14-over left the Seminoles eight strokes out of the top 15 with most of the field still on the course.
“Without question a disappointing finish to our round,” said FSU Head Coach Trey Jones. “We simply didn’t execute on the last four holes. We are playing well enough to get back into the top 15 tomorrow then work toward the final eight.”
Josh Lee and Corey Carlson, who had two of the best rounds on Friday, posted the two best rounds for FSU on Saturday as well as both shot three-over. Hank Lebioda and Cristobal Del Solar each carded a four-over.
Florida State’s Sunday tee time will be determined after all the schools have completed round two. Fans can follow live at GolfStat.com or by following the official FSU Golf twitter feed @FSUGolf.
