TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – All six players for the Florida State Men’s Golf Team shot under par on Sunday afternoon as the Seminoles end the first round of the Cabo Collegiate Invitational in second place at 12-under.

Florida State trails only Oklahoma State (-13) by one stroke at one of collegiate golf’s most competitive tournaments. Frederik Kjettrup, Dan Bradbury, Brett Roberts and Cole Anderson each carded 3-under 68s in the opening round.

Playing as an individual, freshman Patrick McCann ended his first day as the top-ranked individual in the field after also carding a 3-under 68. Oklahoma State’s Brian Stark (-6) leads the field at 6-under.

Bradbury’s 68 was highlighted by two eagles, making him one of 14 golfers to record an eagle in the opening round but the only one to produce two.

Anderson totaled a team-best five birdies, while Kjettrup co-leads the field with 15 pars recorded so far.

Nine of the 15 competing teams in the tournament are under par. Following OSU and FSU, Ole Miss is in third place at 10-under, then Arkansas (-8) and Tennessee (-5) to round out the Top five.
