WATERSOUND, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – Sophomore Frederik Kjettrup carded an opening-round 72 to shoot even par at Shark’s Tooth Golf Club in the first day of the Watersound Invitational.

Kjettrup’s 72 is tied for 14th at the tournament. Florida State Men’s Golf is 11th among the 14 participating teams at the Watersound Invitational, shooting a 9-over 297 in the first round.

The native of Aabybro, Denmark, used four birdies to his advantage in what has shown to be a difficult course so far. Just 13 of the 72 competing golfers managed to shoot under par, led by Alabama’s Canon Claycomb who shot a 5-under 67 to start.
