Lusenhop Leads Seminole Men’s Golf Team At Landfall Tradition

Oct. 31, 2003

Florida State University senior Brad Lusenhop carded a season-low 71 and is in a tie for seventh place in the individual standings and the Seminoles are in a tie for fifth place in the team standings after the first round of the Landfall Tradition on the Jack Nicklaus Course at the Country Club of Landfall. Lusenhop begins second round play only five strokes behind the leader, Justin Collins of Ohio State.

Minnesota is the team leader after one round of play as they turned in a team score of 284. The Golden Gophers are followed closely by fellow Big Ten members Ohio State (second, 286) and Penn State (third, 295). Florida State is tied with the host team – UNC Wilmington – with a team score of 297.

Lusenhop (Gloversville, N.Y.) carded his best round of the fall season and his best since carding a 71 during the second round of the spring 2002 Billy Hitchcock Intercollegiate. It marks fourth time during his career he has carded a 71 or better and was more than six strokes below his fall season average of 77.83. Lusenhop’s career low round of 69 came during the fall round of the fall 2001 Mason Rudolph Championship.

Juniors Matt Adcock (Apopka, Fla.) and Rusty Mosley (Vidalia, Ga.), Florida State’s most consistent golfers during the last two seasons, carded identical scores of 75. It marked the team-leading seventh time this season Adcock had finished with a score of 75 or less and the fourth time in the last six rounds Mosley had finished at 75 or better.

Junior Mark Sestilio (Punta Gorda, Fla.) carded a 76 and freshman Bradley Ruch (Louisville, Ken.) finished with a 78. Sestilio is Florida State’s second ranked golfer this fall with a 73.71 average in three tournaments and Ruch is competing in his first tournament as a Seminole.

The second round of the event begins Saturday morning at 8:45. The event concludes with a final round of 18 holes Sunday at 8:45.
