Sunday February 11, 2001UF Men's Golf Wins 17th SunTrust Gator Invite

Gainesville, FL

The No.23-ranked University of Florida men's golf team won its 17th SunTrust Gator Invitational with a tournament record score of 810 (-30) at the UF Golf Course Sunday, Feb. 11.

The Gators shot a three-day total of 810 (-30) including a 265 (-15) in the final round to set the team tournament record. The previous record was set last year when the Gators shot a 805 (-25) to win the Invitational by 19 strokes.

Junior Camilo Benedetti (Medellin, Colombia/Instituto Jorge Robledo) won the invitational with a three-round score of 196 (-14). His three round total broke the invitational record for an individual set last year by Alex Rocha of Mississippi State. Freshman Camilo Villegas (Medellin, Colombia/The Columbus School) tied for second for the Gators with a score of 199 (-11) after shooting a 65 (-5) in the final round and sophomore Bubba Dickerson shot a final round four-under par total of 66 to finish in a tie for ninth with a score of 206 (-4). Junior Ben Banks (England, United Kingdom/King Edwards School) finished the invitational in a tie for 21st place with a three-round total of 210 (E) and sophomore Jordan Code (Tampa, Fla.,/ Home Education Program) finished with a score of 213 (+3) to finish 36th.

"This was pretty low scoring. The weather was perfect, the golf course was perfect. The stars were in line for good scoring and at the same time we were being challenged by some pretty good schools," said head coach Buddy Alexander. "We did not have the advantage of a 10 stroke lead and the kids responded to that. That is a pretty good sign."

The Gators will return to the course Feb. 19-20 when they travel to Ponte Vedra, Fla. to play in the University of Florida Mercedes-Benx Collegiate.
