Oct. 5, 2005

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
The Florida State men’s golf team, under the direction of third-year head coach Trey Jones is ranked 24th in the nation in the GolfWeek/Sagarin Performance Index released this week. The Seminoles are the fourth highest ranked team in the Atlantic Coast Conference and the second highest ranked team from the state of Florida.

The Seminoles have earned two top-10 team finishes in two events this fall and hope to continue their winning ways when they travel to play in the 2005 Gary Koch/Cleveland Golf Intercollegiate Oct. 10-11, 2005 at the Old Memorial Golf Course in Tampa, Fla. The Seminoles finished third at the season-opening Tennessee Tournament of Champions and eighth at the Shoal Creek Intercollegiate. It marks the first time the Seminoles have begun a season with consecutive top-10 finishes since the fall of 2003. Following their play in the Gary Koch Intercollegiate, the Seminoles close out their fall season at The Ridges Intercollegiate Oct. 15-16 in Johnson City, Tenn.

“Being recognized nationally is a great honor for our team and shows the positive direction we are moving in as a program,” said Jones. “While this national recognition is a goal for us and every team at Florida State, it part of our building process and not the end of a journey. It’s great for our players and our university. We are going to continue to work hard and hopefully continue to improve as players and as a team.”
