Feb. 1, 2004




GAINESVILLE, Fla. –
The Florida State University men’s golf team finished in a tie for seventh place in the team standings while a trio of Seminoles – juniors Rusty Mosley and Matt Adcock and freshman Bradley Ruch – finished tied for 20th place in the individual standings as play in the 27th Annual Sun Trust Gator Invitational came to a close Sunday. The final round of the event was played in a steady rain which was accompanied by gusty winds.


Top-ranked Florida shot a final round 287 (+7) to win the event by 11 strokes over Alabama-Birmingham at the University of Florida Golf Course. Florida earned its fourth tournament victory in six tournaments this season — the most by a Gator squad since the 2000-01 team also claimed four victories. UAB junior Chris Cousins won his second tournament of the season after carding a final round 70 at the 70-par, 6,701-yard course. He finished at three under (207) and was the only player to conclude the tournament under par.


Mosley, Adcock and Ruch all finished in the top 20 of the individual standings.


Mosley (Vidalia, Ga.) carded a third round 72 and finished with a 218 total. He improved his individual standing by 15 positions after landing in a tie for 35th place after the first 36 holes. Adcock (Apopka, Fla.) and Ruch (Louisville, Ken.) carded third round scores of 75 and finished with three-round 218 totals.


Sophomore Adam Wallace (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.) finished in a tie for 41st place after carding a 78 over the final 18 holes. Senior Tim Vickers (Alpharetta, Ga.) enjoyed his best round of the tournament with a 76 in the third round to finish with a 233 total.


The Seminoles continue their spring season as they travel to play in the Mercedes Benz Collegiate Championship at Sawgrass Country Club in Jacksonville Feb. Feb. 8-10.
