ALPHARETTA, Ga. (Seminoles.com) – The Florida State Men’s Golf Team improved in the final round of the Golf Club of Georgia Collegiate Invitational, shooting 4-over on Sunday to finish 8-over and place 11th at the tournament.
Senior Bennett Baker and sophomore Jamie Li aided the Seminoles by shooting even-par rounds. Baker carded five birdies, which included four on the front nine. Li finished at even-par overall in the tournament.
“We had moments when we showed our potential, but too many mistakes halted any real momentum in rounds two and three,” FSU assistant coach Robert Duck said. “I know the boys will work extremely hard in the off season and will be ready to make an impact in the spring.”
