“This is a balanced team with good chemistry,” head coach Trey Jones said. “Our chemistry grows because we continue to get better. The more they put themselves in the position to win, the better they get.”

Three Florida State players finished in the top six, led by Jonas Blixt (69) and Matt Savage (71), who finished T-3 at 8-under 208. Freshman Drew Kittleson (70) finished T-6 at 6 under par.
