Beating only Jacksonville, UAB, and Florida Gulf Coast U, the Saluki Men’s Golf team rounded out the Seminole Intercollegiate this past Tuesday in 12th place with a +49 rating over par. Their 12th place marking makes for their lowest placing all season and their +49 performance marks their worst score all season.

The Salukis, and every other team invited to the meet, were no match for Florida State, the hosts of the invite. The Seminoles won the meet, shooting 14 under par, 63 strokes ahead of the Dawgs, and 38 ahead of their closest competitor, North Alabama.

Braden Hosington led the way for the dawgs as he posted a +9 over-par rating, aiding to the Salukis’ efforts. Hosington totaled 225 for the whole meet, making for a team-best at 22nd place. Hugo Archer and Justin Wingerter trailed slightly behind Hosington, each totaling 228 throughout the invite, tying for 35th place and a +12 over-par rating.


Tom Cleaton drew 5 more strokes behind Archer and Wingerter at a 233 score for +17 over par, tying for 60th place. Andrew Thornton rounded out the Dawgs’ performance at 236 for +20 over par and tying for 70th place.

The Dawgs will be back on the green in a little under two weeks when they head to South Carolina for Golfweek at the Any Given Tuesday Collegiate. The meet will commence on Monday, March 27th into Wednesday, March 29th.
