The Florida State men’s golf team, led by sophomore Matt Adcock, finished in ninth place at the sixth annual Palmetto Intercollegiate at the Palmetto Golf Club. It marked the second top-10 finish of the season for the Seminoles who also finished 10th at the Gator Invitational. Adcock finished in a tie for 15th-place to mark the second consecutive event he has finished in the top 15 of the individual standings.

The College of Charleston won the-rain shortened event with Aaron Black of USC-Aiken earning individual medallist honors. Charleston and Black were in first place through both rounds of the event. The event was shortened from 54 holes to 36 because of rain during the first round Monday.

He is averaging a career-low 73.82 strokes in 11 rounds during the 2003 spring season.

Freshman Adam Wallace (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.) shot a career-low one-under par 70 in the second round and finished in a tie for 37th-place. He totaled 148 for the 36-hole event and finished as the second-highest ranking Seminole in the field of 81. Wallace improved his individual standing by 29 positions with his stellar play in the second round.

Sophomore Rusty Mosley (Vidalia, Ga.) continued his fine play this spring with a two-day total of 150. He finished with a three-over par score of 74 in the second round. Mosley finished in a tie for 45th-place with junior Tim Vickers (Alpharetta, Ga.) who scored 74 in the first round of the event.
