MURRELLS INLET, S.C. –
The Florida State University men’s golf team is in third place after the first two rounds of the General Jim Hackler Invitational at the TPC of Myrtle Beach. The Seminoles are led by freshman Nicholas Smith who is in a tie for fifth place in the individual standings after carding a pair of one-under par scores of 71. He is only two strokes behind Rhys Davies of East Tennessee State who led eight golfers who shot under par golf during the first two rounds of the event.

Florida State is looking for its third top-three team finish of the spring. The Seminoles finished in third place in the season opening Gator Invitational and in second at the Lexus/Naples Intercollegiate during the last week of February.

East Tennessee State, led by Davies, leads the team standings with a two-round team total of 575. The Buccaneers are five strokes ahead of Coastal Carolina and 13 strokes in front of Florida State. The Seminoles were in third place after the first round and maintained their position over the second round of 36 holes.
