Tuesday October 1, 2013Gators Tie for Third at Shoal Creek Intercollegiate

Birmingham, Ala.

The Florida men’s golf team saw success today as they came away with a shared spot for third at the Shoal Creek Intercollegiate.

 

Junior J.D. Tomlinson led the way for the Gators, finishing in the top-five individually. Tomlinson, who had a stellar round yesterday, fed off of that momentum and propelled himself to a career-best finish (T3) and a new low tournament score of 210 after shooting rounds of 73-68-69 and finishing the event six-under.

 

Freshman Victor Tarnstrom matched his six birdies from yesterday’s second round, to grant him his first under-par finish of the year at one-under, tied for 12th place.

 

Buddy’s Bite: “Today was pretty solid and this was the toughest course. There were different locations because they backed a couple of tees up. Overall, this week was more positive than negative. We have to turn our poor rounds into mediocre rounds so we can stay in the golf tournament a little better. But the positives outweigh the negatives. J.D. had a career-best finish so that’s good. He struggled a little this summer and at the end of last year. It’s nice to see him figure it out again. Victor is a freshman still and has some things to clean up but he looks like a player.”
