GOLF Channel will air Wednesday’s championship match beginning at 5 p.m. ET.

The Seminoles’ first two rounds begin at 2:30 p.m. ET on Friday and 9:10 a.m. on Saturday.

FSU rides into its first NCAA Finals since 2017 with some serious momentum, winning the Tallahassee Regional convincingly last week after shooting 34-under (271-281-278). The Seminoles shot twice as low as runner-up Georgia (-17) to card their first regional victory, a performance that propelled them to earn the NCAA’s top seed in the finals.

Graduate transfer Vincent Norrman (-9) and John Pak (-8) finished third and fourth in the regional, respectively. The two experienced golfers make up one of the nation’s best collegiate duos, with Pak leading the team with a 69.78 scoring average while Norrman is second at 70.74.

FSU is paired with No. 2 Oklahoma and No. 3 Oklahoma State for each of the first two rounds of play. The Seminoles will also have freshman talent Brett Roberts, redshirt sophomore Cole Anderson and freshman Frederik Kjettrup in the lineup. Graduate student Greyson Porter will serve as the alternate.

FSU’s best finish in NCAA Finals history came in 2010 when Seminole Alum Brooks Koepka helped the Noles to a tie for third place after reaching the semifinals of match play.
