GAINESVILLE, Fla. –
Florida State senior Peter Mitchell is in a tie for 21st place in the individual standings and the Seminole men’s golf team is in a tie for ninth place in the team standings after the first two rounds of the Gator Invitational at the University of Florida Golf Course. Mitchell tied his career-low single-round score with a 70 in the second round and begins play in Sunday’s third and final round within nine strokes of the individual leader.


Augusta State University holds the team lead with a two-round total of 585. The Jaguars lead Florida by six and Georgia Southern by eight strokes. Florida State is tied for ninth with Vanderbilt – the Seminoles and Commodores have identical team scores of 592.
