TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – The No. 1 Florida State Men’s Golf Team heads to another competitive tournament this week as it prepares for The Valspar Collegiate held in Palm City, Fla., on Monday and Tuesday.
The two-day tournament includes several other quality teams as well. The Valspar field involves FSU, Houston, Pepperdine, SMU, USF, Duke, Clemson, Arizona State, Wake Forest, Ohio State and Marquette.
Playing for the Seminoles are Vincent Norrman, John Pak, Brett Roberts, Frederik Kjettrup and Connor Futrell. Competing individually will be Cole Anderson.
The Seminoles moved into the top spot of Golfstat’s rankings last week following their impressive showing at the Cabo Collegiate in San Antonio, where they placed second by one stroke in extremely difficult course conditions. Florida State owns two wins this spring in tournaments, including the season-opening Camp Creek Seminole Invitational and the Seminole Intercollegiate.
In four tournaments played, FSU has three Top-2 finishes and a sixth-place showing at the Timuquana Collegiate, which was won by Norrman.
Pak and Norrman could be the top 1-2 punch in collegiate golf, with both showing average scores of 70.17 and average scores vs. par of -1.83. Norrman leads the Seminoles with 11 rounds this season at par or less, and both are tied with five rounds apiece in the 60s.
Futrell is third on the team with an average score of 71.83, while Kjettrup is fourth at 71.89. FSU has six golfers with an average score below 73.00.
