Tuesday October 15, 2013Gators Finish Seventh at Crooked Stick Intercollegiate

Carmel, Ind.

The University of Florida men’s golf team encountered another sluggish afternoon, slipping from the top-five to finish seventh out of 14 teams at the Crooked Stick Intercollegiate.

 

Shooting even-par on the afternoon, junior J.D. Tomlinson continued his consistency for the Gators by staying towards the top of the leaderboard. Tomlinson tallied rounds of 72-75-72 (219) to claim his second-straight top-five finish of the fall.

 

Freshman Ryan Orr recorded his first top-20 finish as a Gator, shooting a 72 in round one and a 74 today to conclude the tournament in a tie for 17th place.  

 

Buddy’s Bite: “Another disappointing day. Happy for J.D. (Tomlinson), he played nicely. He’s had a really good semester. Really proud of that given he struggled in the spring and in the summer. Tip of the cap to him for turning things around. Ryan Orr is doing great job as a freshman. He’s got a lot to learn but is soaking things in the right way. As a team though, we have to get tougher. It was a tough golf course; you have to move forward and stay in the present and we didn’t.”
