March 15, 2004

Junior Matt Adcock is in a tie for 35th place and the Florida State men’s golf team is in 13th place after the first two rounds of the Palmetto Intercollegiate at the Palmetto Golf Club. Adcock led the Seminoles with a one-over par score of 72 in round one and has a 36-hole total of 149. He begins play in round three well within reach of a top-10 individual finish.

South Carolina, ranked 14th in the latest national Golfweek/Sagarin rankings, holds the team lead by 12 strokes over Coastal Carolina. The host school, South Carolina-Aiken, is in third place in the team standings. Erik Johansen and Martin Rominger of South Carolina are ranked first and second in the individual standings with only one stroke separating the teammates.

Adcock (Apopka, Fla.) continued his fine play for the Seminoles as a team leader this spring. He broke out of the gate quickly as he carded a 72 in the first round and was among the top 15 golfers after the first round. Despite a six-over par 77 in the second round, Adcock is only seven strokes from breaking into the top 10 in the individual standings.

Bradley Ruch (Louisville, Ky.) is in a tie for 42nd place in the individual standings after carding consecutive scores of 75. Ruch is competing in his first season as a member of the Seminoles. Sophomore Adam Wallace (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.) is in a tie for 54th place with a two-round score of 152.

The third and final round of 18 holes is set to begin Tuesday at 8:30 a.m.
