SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Seminoles.com) – Redshirt freshman Cole Anderson was the big highlight of Florida State Men’s Golf’s opening round of the fall season. He made his FSU debut by carding a 4-under 66 at the Maui Jim Intercollegiate at Mirabel Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Anderson, who hails from Camden, Maine, enrolled early at FSU in January but did not compete in the 2019 spring season. His first nine holes as a Seminole included two birdies and a 34, but his second nine were even more impressive when he registered two birdies and an eagle for a 32. His eagle came on the seventh-hole par 5, 558 yards out.
Anderson is tied for 10th overall. Also playing well was junior Parker Reddig, who shot a 1-over 71. Reddig added FSU’s other eagle on the day, scoring a 3 on the par-5, 561-yard 17th hole. Reddig led the Seminoles with six birdies on the day, tying for the 10th-most among the 75-player field at the Maui Jim Intercollegiate.
The Seminoles are 14th in the 15-team field at 3-over (283). The Top 5 teams on the leaderboard include Arizona State (-18), Clemson (-15), Arizona (-12) and Kent State (-11) and Illinois (-11).
Senior Jamie Li recorded a 2-over 72, while sophomore Calvin Sierota shot 4-over and fellow sophomore Alberto Martinez carded a 5-over 75.
In the individual-based Mea Lanakila Individual, senior Greyson Porter is tied for 16th at 3-over and freshman Fletcher Wunderlich is tied for 21st at 4-over.
