TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Junior Chase Seiffert heads into the final day of the 2012 Seminole Intercollegiate atop the leaderboard, and the Florida State men’s golf team sits in second-place after the conclusion of Saturday’s second round at the Southwood Golf Club.

Florida State carded a 5-under 279 and sits five strokes behind Georgia Tech with a 36-hole total of 11-under 557. The Yellow Jackets tallied a 10-under 274 for round two and have a 16-under-par 552 two-day score.

Seiffert fired his second consecutive 4-under 67 on Saturday, scorching the front nine with a 3-under-par 33. He made back-to-back birdies on Nos. 5 and 6 and, again, on Nos. 9 and 10. Seiffert had a pair of bogeys on Nos. 15 and 16, but rebounded for a birdie on No. 17 – his sixth of the afternoon.

Seiffert, (8-under 67-67=134), is one stroke ahead of defending Seminole Intercollegiate champion, Kennesaw State’s Jeff Karlsson, who followed a round-one 65 with a second-round 70.

Senior Brooks Koepka is tied for fifth after recording his second straight 2-under 69. He has a 4-under-par 138 36-hole total.

Seiffert will be looking to become the 22nd Seminole ever to grab medalist honors at a tournament and the first since Koepka accomplished that feat by snagging a four-shot victory at the Brickyard Collegiate Championship in Macon, Ga., in October.

“We’ve got two guys playing the kind of golf that can give us a chance to win,” Florida State head coach Trey Jones said. “We’re in a position that a really good round could give us an opportunity. We’re trailing an excellent golf team that isn’t going to make mistakes. It’s going to come down to what we do. That’s only what we can control anyways. We’ve got two guys playing at a level that will give us a chance to win. It depends on now what our other three guys are going to do to step up.”

Senior Wesley Graham fired a day-two 71 and has a 1-over-par 143 total to tie him for 21st with 18 holes to play. Freshman Daniel Berger is tied for 28th with a 2-over 144 after firing a second consecutive 72.
Graduate student Kyle Cobb rounds out the Seminole top five with a 3-over 145 36-hole score. He is tied for 35th.

Playing as individuals for the Garnet & Gold, junior Doug Letson is tied for eighth with a 3-under-par 139 score, while sophomore Joaquin Lolas is tied for 59th with a 7-over 149 total.

Letson had five birdies en route to his second straight negative round, a day-two 2-under 69.

The Seminoles are 12 shots ahead of third-place Kennesaw State (1-over-par 569). Mercer (570) and Jacksonville (573) sit in fourth and fifth, respectively.

The final round of the tournament tees off at 8:30 a.m. The Seminoles will begin Sunday’s final round at hole No. 1 at 9:47 a.m. with Georgia Tech, Kennesaw State and Mercer.
