TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – Fresh off a momentum-building win at the Camp Creek Seminole Invitational, Florida State Men’s Golf heads to the opposite coast in Ponte Vedra, Fla., as it prepares for the Timuquana Collegiate held at Timuquana Country Club on Jan. 25-26.
The 54-hole tournament will include 36 holes played on Monday and 18 holes in Tuesday’s final round. The event is co-hosted by UNF and Jacksonville, with the other participants including Florida, UCF, USF, Virginia, Notre Dame, Purdue, Oklahoma State and Liberty.
The Timuquana Collegiate is one of several in-state tournaments that Florida State fans have to watch their team. FSU will also play in Stuart (March 15-16), home in Tallahassee (Feb. 20-21), Ponte Vedra again (March 31-April 1) and Naples (April 4-6) during the regular season.
Senior transfer and Tallahassee native Connor Futrell looks for another strong finish this week after tying for third at Camp Creek Golf Club where he shot a 7-under 209.
Senior John Pak played in his first-stroke play tournament since the U.S. Open last weekend and is prepared to get into a groove at Timuquana this week. Pak and graduate transfer Vincent Norrman, both recent Arnold Palmer Cup members, tied for seventh at Camp Creek and hope to build on that and give FSU its second consecutive tournament title to start the spring season.
The Seminoles last won consecutive tournament titles on Feb. 5 and Feb. 12, 2019, when they won the Sea Best Invitational followed by the Mobile Sports Authority Intercollegiate.
Also competing for FSU are redshirt sophomore Cole Anderson, graduate student Greyson Porter and freshman Brett Roberts. All three were part of FSU’s impressive group last week that finish in the Top nine at Camp Creek.
Following Timuquana, FSU hosts the Seminole Intercollegiate held Feb. 20-21 at Golden Eagle Country Club.
