Live scoring for the Palm Beach Regional is available as always on Golfstat.com.
Experienced golfers Frederik Kjettrup, Brett Roberts and Cole Anderson were part of FSU’s team in 2021 that won the NCAA Tallahassee Regional at the Seminole Legacy Club. Kjettrup looks to guide FSU to another year of success in NCAA play, recently being named to the 15-member All-ACC Team.
The Seminoles are expected to have the services of senior Dan Bradbury, who was forced to miss the ACC Championship in Panama City due to illness. The native of Wakefield, England, is shooting +0.38 vs. par this season and owns three Top 10 finishes this year at the Mobile Bay Intercollegiate (third), the All-American Intercollegiate (T5th) and the Daniel Island Intercollegiate (T7th).
Joining FSU among the 14-team field are No. 1 seed Vanderbilt, No. 2 Florida, No. 3 Notre Dame, fifth-seeded Purdue, New Mexico (6), USF (7), Little Rock (8), College of Charleston (9), Indiana (10), San Diego (11), Davidson (12), Loyola Maryland (13) and Charleston Southern (14).
Senior Michael Sakane showed great progress in FSU’s last outing at the ACC Championship, tying for 13th in stroke play at 5-under to help the Seminoles to the match play semifinals. He finished second last year at the NCAA Regional in Tallahassee while competing for Jacksonville.
Roberts hopes to continue his momentum from a strong showing at the ACC Championship where he finished ninth in stroke play and shot 7-under. The Coral Springs, Fla., native will be returning to the South Florida area when he plays at The Club at Admiral’s Cove on June 6 for a spot in the US Open after reaching the final qualifying stage.
Anderson and freshman Patrick McCann will also be traveling for the Seminoles. McCann is fifth on the team with a 72.50 scoring average this season.
