Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

The Florida Menís Golf team opened the 2006 spring season by recording a team score of 320 (+32) at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate. Despite past success at the Sawgrass C.C., the Gators struggled to overcome a slow start on Sunday afternoon and finished the day in 15th place.

Freshman Billy Horschel (Grant, Fla.) finds himself tied for 44nd after carding a seven-over-par score of 79. Jacksonville native Toby Ragland carded an 82 (+10) in his return home.

 

Senior Matt Every (Daytona Beach, Fla.) recorded a pair of birdies on the eighth and 12th holes, but finished with a nine-over-par 81. Every, who has placed in the top-five in each of the Gators four tournaments this season, is tied for 55th.

 

Sophomore Manuel Villegas (Medellin, Columbia) appeared in his third tournament of the season and carded an 82 (+10). Sophomore Jessie Mudd (Louisville, Ky.) played as an individual and recorded a score of 85 (+13) to finish the day in 72ndplace.
