Seminole Intercollegiate offers Hilltoppers strong competition

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A storied tournament and strong field await the Hilltoppers in their second outing of the spring season this week.

The WKU men’s golf team head south to the Seminole Intercollegiate hosted by Florida State at the par-72, 7,172-yard Southwood Golf Club in Tallahassee, Fla. This is the 41st installment of the tournament, which began in the 1969-70 season.

Play will begin with tee times starting at 7:30 a.m. CT Friday and Saturday. The final round will begin at 7:00 a.m. CT Sunday. Play will consist of 18 holes each day.

WKU is one of 14 schools in the field this weekend. The competition includes three programs ranked in the GolfStat Top 50: Georgia Tech (24), Florida State (31) and Jacksonville (32).

The Hilltoppers have already competed in one event this spring, the Mobile Sports Authority Intercollegiate hosted by South Alabama in February.

Redshirt freshman Linus Lo and redshirt sophomore Billy Tom Sargent led the Hilltoppers in that event in Mobile, Ala., tying for 23rd and 34th, respectively.

WKU will put Lo, Sargent, sophomore Blake Smith and freshmen Tom Bevington and Kyle Jeffers into action this week in Tallahassee.
