Maguire Ties For Sixth At Olympia Fields.

Men's Golf finished 10th at their first tournament of the season.

OLYMPIA FIELDS, IL - The No. 13 Florida State men's golf team came into the Fighting Illini Invitational to test the freshmen and head coach Trey Jones got the answer with freshmen Jack Maguire finishing tied for sixth at the damp Olympia Fields Country Club.

"Jack had an impressive debut into college golf," said Jones. "I am proud of the way he handled himself on a difficult golf course; you can't fake it around here."

The St. Petersburg, Fla., native had a strong final round with a 2-over 72 in rain including birdies on the eighth and 11th hole. He finished the tournament with a 4-over 214.

The team finished with a three day total of a 41-over 881 after carding their lowest score, a 291 11-over third round. The team now has three weeks to get ready for their next tournament.

"We came here to identify strengths and expose weaknesses and we did that," continued Jones. "This team has potential but is not where we need to be if we are going to compete at the level we are accustomed to competing. While we didn't finish as high as we wanted, there were enough good things to build on. Our teams have a history of improving as the year progresses and it appears these guys have the desire and discipline to improve."

Freshmen Josh Lee of Orange Park, Fla., had a rough start on the day with a 5-over on the front nine, but finished the back nine even. With a three day 11-over 221, he finished tied for 29th. Redshirt freshmen Cristobal Del Solar finished close behind Lee with a 14-over 224 to tie for 45th.

The team needed the upperclassmen to step it up today and sophomore Collin Engelhardt answered that with his best round of collegiate golf by posting an even par 70. He moved up 21 spots today to finish tied for 50th with a 16-over 226. Sophomore Hank Lebioda finished tied for 53rd with a 17-over 227.

No. 1 Alabama held onto the lead to win the tournament while Robby Shelton of Alabama and Cameron Wilson of Stanford shared the individual title with 210 even par scores.

Seminoles Conclude Brickyard Collegiate.

The team finished the tournament tied for sixth place in the 14-team field.

MACON, GA - The Florida State men's golf team finished tied for sixth at the Brickyard Collegiate Championship with a three round 1-over 865 score. Freshman Jack Maguire led the Seminoles today and finished tied for 16th.

"Each of our players got exposed this weekend," said head coach Trey Jones. "Our short games were not sharp and I blame that on our preparation. I feel like our freshman Jack and Josh will learn and turn their 70 and 72 into a 66 and 68 with experience. We have one week to prepare for a very good field and great golf course in Crooked Stick."

The Seminoles posted a 1-under 281 today with Maguire shooting a team best 2-under 70 in the final round. He started and finished the day strong with birdies on both the first and last hole.

Sophomore Rowin Caron finished the tournament 21st and finished the day with a 1-over 73. Freshman Josh Lee finished behind him in 28th after making an even par 72 for the second straight day. Lee made the only eagle on the team this weekend on the ninth hole.

Freshman Cristobal Del Solar posted his best score of the weekend with an even par 72 and finished tied for 49th. He finished the tournament with a birdie on the 12th hole in each round of the event. Wrapping up for the Seminoles was sophomore Hank Lebioda who made a 1-under 73 and finished the weekend tied for 55th.

Freshman Anthony Alex played as an individual at the Brickyard by Riverside. He finished tied for 37th and finished Sunday with a 1-under 73 in his first collegiate tournament.

Host Mercer won the 14-team field with a 27-under 837 and was closely followed by No. 4 Georgia Tech by one stroke. No. 23 Florida State was joined by No. 3 Georgia, No. 4 Georgia Tech, No. 13 GRU Augusta, No. 14 Virginia Tech, No. 27 USF, Boston College, Chattanooga, Furman, Georgia State, Gonzaga, Louisville and Princeton.

Florida State In Second After Two Rounds.

Freshman Jack Maguire makes first hole in one by a Seminole since 2008.

Oct. 14, 2013

CARMEL, IN - After two rounds on Monday, the Florida State men's golf team is in second place of the Crooked Stick Intercollegiate only three strokes behind first place Georgia. With two players in the top five, the Seminoles are ready to improve in the third round on Tuesday.

"I am proud of the way we competed today," said head coach Trey Jones. "Having a chance to win going into the final round tomorrow was one of our goals. Due to NCAA rules it is impossible to prepare for a 36 hole day. We have four freshmen here that have never done that before and they wore down mentally and physically."

Freshman Jack Maguire continues to make an impact on the team as he made Florida State's first ace since 2008 by Drew Kittleson. In the first round he made his hole in one on the 13th hole.

"I hit a 7 iron from 173 yards out and hit it pretty easy with a three yard fade," said Maguire. "I couldn't see it go in but I saw it bounce once. I saw the Georgia coach throw his hands up and that's when I knew."

Leading the team and tied for third place is sophomore Rowin Caron. After a 74 in the first round, he followed up with a 1-under 71 in the second. In the first round he had two bogeys in the front nine but managed to make two birdies on the back. In the second round he posted five birdies and is four strokes out of first place.

Maguire, who is in fifth place, led the tournament after the first round. He made four birdies to go with his 13th hole ace and finished the round with a 2-under 70. In the second round, he had a rough time on the last six holes with four bogeys, including one on the 13th, to finish the round 4-over.

Another freshman who played hard today was Cristobal Del Solar. At one point during the first round, he was leading the tournament until a triple bogey on 18 halted him to finish 3-over. Del Solar gained some strokes back in the second round with an eagle on the ninth hole to finish the round 1-over and is tied for 11th.

Freshman Anthony Alex is tied for 15th with a 5-over 149 on the day. He posted four birdies including three in the first round. Freshman Josh Lee is tied for 51st with a 12-over 156.

No. 31 Florida State is joined by No. 6 Georgia, No. 24 Arkansas, No. 46 Florida, No. 49 TCU, Indiana, Ball State, Eastern Michigan, IUPUI, Kansas, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Purdue and Toledo. The team tees off at 10:10 a.m. on Monday from the first hole.


Seminoles Finish Fourth At Crooked Stick.

Florida State had two players who finished in the top ten.

Oct. 15, 2013

CARMEL, IN - The Florida State men's golf team finished fourth at the Crooked Stick Intercollegiate on Tuesday with a 23-over 887, 12 strokes behind first place Arkansas in the 14 team field. The Seminoles finish the fall next week at the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational.

"We got outplayed on the last nine holes today," said head coach Trey Jones. "Our start gave us a chance to win but we didn't execute coming down the finish. If our players learn from the experience of contending to win a golf course then we are moving in the right direction. It is easy to see why Crooked Stick has hosted major golf championships."

Caron, a sophomore, had a 75 today and finished the tournament with a 4-over 220, eight strokes behind first place finisher Sebastian Cappelen of Arkansas. Freshman Jack Maguire finished the tournament tied for eighth with a 5-over 221. He finished the day with two birdies.

Cristobal Del Solar finished the tournament tied for 17th after posting a 4-over 76 on Tuesday. The freshmen posted four birdies on the day to make up for a double bogey on the 10th.

Freshman Josh Lee moved up 22 spots after posting a 1-over 73. He finished the day with four birdies to finish the tournament with a 13-over 229 to finish tied for 29th. Freshman Anthony Alex finished tied for 25th with a 12-over 228.

Seminoles Finish Day One Of Isleworth Collegiate.

Florida State is 12 strokes behind first place Alabama.

Oct. 20, 2013

WINDERMERE, FL - The No. 29 Florida State men's golf team finished the first round of the 10th annual Isleworth Collegiate Invitational in 10th place, 12 strokes behind first place Alabama.

Sophomores Rowin Caron and Hank Lebioda led the team at the Isleworth Golf and Country Club finishing in the top 25. The team tees off Monday on the par 72 course at 8:25 a.m. from the 10th hole.

"The course and weather were perfect today," said head coach Trey Jones. "The hole locations required discipline and execution to play well. The freshmen are beginning to understand what they need to do to become more complete players. For us to play well in this field, we are going to need one or two low rounds each day."

Caron played strong on the front nine with three birdies. After the turn he made two bogeys to finish the day with a 1-under 71, tied for 16th. Lebioda is tied for 23rd after balancing three bogeys with three birdies to shot an even par 72.

Freshman Anthony Alex is tied 39th in the tournament with a 2-over 74. Alex led the team with 5 birdies on the day but was hurt by a double bogey on four and a triple bogey on 15. Freshman Josh Lee played an even 36 front nine before closing out the day with a 3-over 75 to sit tied for 48th.

Closing out the Seminoles is freshman Jack Maguire who is tied for 69th with a 7-over 79.

The 15-team field has 14 teams ranked in the top 50 including No. 1 Alabama, No. 4 California, No. 6 Illinois, No. 11 New Mexico, No. 15 Texas, No. 16 UCF, No. 18 Arkansas, No. 23 Vanderbilt, No. 31 GRU Augusta, No. 34 LSU, No. 35 Texas Tech, No. 47 UNLV, No. 48 TCU and North Florida.


Florida State Moves Up Four Spots At Isleworth.

The Seminoles posted an eight stroke improvement from the first round.

Oct. 21, 2013

WINDERMERE, FL - Coming into the second round of the Isleworth Collegiate Invitation, the Florida State men's golf team knew they had to play some strong golf and sophomores Rowin Caron and Hank Lebioda did just that to push the team up four spots to sixth place.

The team posted a 4-under 284 on Monday, an eight stroke improvement from Sunday's performance. The team is 24 strokes behind first place Alabama, but is only six out of third. The Seminoles tee off Tuesday at 8:50 a.m. to close out the tournament.

"Hank and Rowin gave us good rounds today," said head coach Trey Jones. "It is good to see both of them in the top after two rounds."

Both Lebioda and Caron are 4-under through two days to tie for fourth place in the individual standings. Lebioda posted six birdies today for a 4-under 68 while Caron had a 3-under 69.

Freshman Jack Maguire posted a five stroke improvement with a 2-over 74 and is tied for 64th. Also contributing to the team score is freshman Josh Lee with a 1-over 73. Lee is tied for 43rd after making four birdies.

"Jack and Anthony had opportunities to play good rounds early on but made some mistakes that young players can easily do on this course," continued Jones. "I am proud of Jack's 74. He had lost a lot of confidence in the past few days and really competed well today."

Closing out the team is Anthony Alex who is tied for 51st. The freshman carded a 4-over 76 after going 5-over on his last nine holes of the day.


Lebioda Places Second At Isleworth Collegiate Invitational.

Florida State finishes fourth out of 15 teams.

Oct. 22, 2013

WINDERMERE, FL - After missing the cut to play in last week's tournament, Hank Lebioda knew he needed to play his best golf at the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational this week. The sophomore did just that, only 30 minutes away from his parent's house, as he finished in second place on Tuesday.

The Florida State men's golf team continued to move up the standings and finished in fourth place with a 4-over 868 over three rounds at the Isleworth Golf and Country Club.

"We started the fall season knowing our players were going to face the top players and teams in college golf on PGA Tour golf courses," said head coach Trey Jones. "The coaching staff and the players now have a clear idea what we all need to do to improve."

Coming into the day tied for fourth, Lebioda started the day with his family and friends in the crowd and a birdie on the first hole. He then followed that up with another birdie on the third.

The Winter Springs, Fla., native played even par golf until a bogey on the 14th, a hole that also plagued him on the first day. He got right back into the swing of things with a pair of birdies on the 16th and 17th holes to finish the tournament in second with a 7-under 209, four strokes behind first place Trey Mullinax of Alabama.

"Hank played like one of the top players in the country this week," continued Jones. "He just made a big step from being a freshman to being a marquee player on a good team."

"To have the opportunity to play in my hometown was such a humbling experience," said Lebioda. "A lot of my family and friends were there supporting me the entire time which really helped me play the way I did."

Sophomore Rowin Caron posted his second top ten finish of the fall Tuesday as he finished tied for eighth. Although he posted a 3-over 75 in the third round, his strong first round (71) and second round (69) helped keep him in the top ten.

"Rowin's top 10 finish is impressive as well," continued Jones. "Rowin is becoming a more complete player. I look for him to come on and have a great spring."

Florida State's freshmen closed out the team beginning with Josh Lee who was only 1-over Tuesday despite a triple bogey on hole five. He had five birdies on the day to help him move up eight spots in a tie for 35th. Anthony Alex finished tied for 50th after a 3-over 75 third round. Jack Maguire also posted a 3-over 75 but finished the tournament tied for 59th.

"Our younger guys showed me something this week," concluded Jones. "While they made some big numbers, you can see that a light is going off realizing their mistakes are correctable.

Noles Third At Gator Invitational.

Sophomore Hank Lebioda sits in second place, two strokes behind first place.

Feb. 15, 2014

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -The No. 20 Florida State men's golf team opened the season Saturday at the Gator Invitational in third place after two rounds of play. The team is only six strokes out of first place. Sophomore Hank Lebioda is in second place in the individual standings with a 1-under 139 at the 70 par Mark Bostick Golf Course.

"One of our goals each week is to put ourselves in an opportunity to win going into the final round," said head coach Trey Jones. "I'm excited that we have done that and I look forward to see if we can produce a good round when something is on the line. This course requires discipline and patience; we lost our patience in the final holes."

Lebioda opened the morning with a 1-under 69 in the first round by carding five birdies, including two in the first five holes. He followed up that round with an even par 70. He is two strokes behind Mercer's Trey Rule.

"Hank played well today," continued Jones. "I look for him to go out and execute well tomorrow. If he can get the putter going, he will have a chance to win."

Florida State was in first place after the first round with a 4-over 284. The team was 12-over in the second round to finish the day with a 16-over 576. No. 21 Arkansas is in the lead with a 10-over 570 while No. 34 Mercer has a 13-over 573.

Freshman Jack Maguire is tied for 15th with a 5-over 145. After a 72 in the first round, he made four birdies in the second round but had two double bogeys and ended up with a 73. Freshman Cristobal Del Solar also posted a 72 in the first round and a 73 in the second. Both sit tied for 15th.

Sophomore Rowin Caron played a strong first round with a 1-over 71 including two birdies on the front nine. In the second round, he posted seven bogeys for a 76. He sits tied for 27th. Also tied for 27th is freshman Harry Ellis who is playing as an individual. He made a 74 in the first round and followed it up with a 73 in the second round.


Lebioda Finishes Tied For First At Gator Invitational.

Florida State finished second in their first tournament of the spring.

Feb. 16, 2014

GAINESVILLE, FL – In just the first tournament of the spring, the No. 20 Florida State men’s golf team finished strong in second place at the Gator Invitational as sophomore Hank Lebioda finished tied for first. The Seminoles finished the tournament with a 15-over 855, six strokes behind first place Arkansas at the Mark Bostick Golf Course.

“I am really proud of the way Hank led the team this week,” said head coach Trey Jones. “Tying for first should give him some confidence going forward. While we have a lot of maturing to do we are starting to show signs of a competitive team.”

Florida State had its best round of the tournament with a 1-under 279 to move up one spot on the leaderboard. It also marks the best round of the school year for the team.

Lebioda posted a weekend best of a 3-under 67 to have his best collegiate finish with a 4-under 206. He had three birdies on the day to catch up to first place Trey Rule of Mercer. On the final hole of the day, Lebioda had the lead, but Rule made birdie to force a playoff.

After both made par on the first hole, Lebioda hit the ball in the water on hole two while Rule birdied to take the individual medalist honors.

“I’m really proud of how I handled myself the past two days,” said Lebioda. “By no means did I have my best stuff, yet I was still able to go out, grind and have a great tournament. Since my first day at Florida State, coach Jones has prepared me for a time like this, and to see it start to pay off is a really cool feeling.”

Freshman Jack Maguire moved up seven positions during the day to finish tied for eighth with a 3-over 213. In the third round, he posted a 2-under 68. After making a bogey and double bogey on the eight hole on Saturday, less wind allowed for a more comfortable club selection and then drilled a 20 foot putt to make birdie. He finished the front nine with three birdies Sunday.

Freshman Cristobal Del Solar and sophomore Rowin Caron both made 2-over 72s Sunday to go towards the team score. Del Solar finished the tournament with a 7-over 217 to tie for 18th place while Caron finished tied for 25th with a 9-over 219.

Playing as an individual, freshman Harry Ellis finished his first collegiate tournament tied for 30th with a 10-over 220. Freshman Josh Lee finished the tournament tied for 56th.

Maguire Breaks Records While Noles Win USF Invitational.

Breaking the course record, Jack Maguire wins the individual title at the USF Invitational.

DADE CITY, FL - Starting nine strokes behind first place, the No. 20 Florida State men's golf team dominated the Lake Jovita Golf and Country Club on Tuesday to win the team title at the USF Invitational. Freshman Jack Maguire engraved his name in the record books with a 10-under round to nab the individual medalist honors.

In order to win the team title, the Seminoles needed all of the team to play great golf and the team did just that to win by 10 strokes over South Florida. The team posted a 24-under 264 Tuesday to make their tournament showing a 41-under 823.

"We talked yesterday after we went down nine shots to USF," said head coach Trey Jones. "We can't control what USF did Monday and they can't control what we did today, so you can't play defensive golf. I can't say enough about a 264, it's just phenomenal golf. Our guys just went out there and played a good round and were fortunate enough to win. This will give our guys a huge confidence boost."

Maguire's 62 is a record low at the Lake Jovita Golf and Country Club and is the lowest round of golf in Florida State history. His three-day 16-under 200 is second in school history. Brooks Koepka carded a 199 at the Florida Atlantic Intercollegiate in 2012.

The St. Petersburg native shot an outstanding 65 in the first round but faltered in the second with a 73.

"I think Jack won the tournament yesterday on the back nine when he turned a 3-over par to a 1-over par," said Jones. "It gave him a chance to do what he did today. That just shows his maturity right there."

He got back on track by starting the day with a birdie on the second hole. After that point, he rolled through the front nine with three more birdies and an eagle on nine. After the turn, he shot another eagle on 11. Tied for the lead on the 18th hole, Maguire sunk a 30 foot putt to clinch his first collegiate win in front of his family and friends.

"I am more than happy with the way the team played today," said Maguire. "It was a great feeling knowing that my team was out there doing their part so I could focus on mine today. It was an awesome experience and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome for the team and myself."

Freshman Cristobal Del Solar had his best career finish by placing fourth with a 13-under 203. He posted a 67, which is also a personal best, Tuesday with seven birdies on the day.

Sophomore Rowin Caron also had a career day with a 6-under 66, his lowest round at Florida State. He drilled seven birdies Tuesday along with an eagle on the long 559 yard hole 11. With a tournament 5-under 211, he finished tied for 16th.

Maguire Leads Seminoles After First Round.

Florida State sits in fourth place, eight strokes behind first place Mercer.

March 14, 2014

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 12 Florida State men's golf team is in fourth place through one round of the Seminole Intercollegiate. Sophomore Jack Maguire leads the team and is tied for second place after a 2-under on Friday. After a great front nine to put the team in second place, the team faltered as they closed out the round at the Southwood Golf Course.

"Our guys just didn't look like they we comfortable today for some reason or another," said head coach Trey Jones. "We didn't execute holes that we usually get up on top of and play well. We have to get passed that and come out tomorrow and play good golf. The course held up well today, it was challenging but we didn't hit the shots we needed to hit. Coming down the stretch we lost our patience. They got frustrated, they're a young group and we've got to learn from that. They just need to get over that when things aren't going as easy as they thought it should."

The tournament concludes Saturday with the second round beginning at 8:30 a.m. Because of weather concerns in the Tallahassee area on Sunday, the third round will be played in the afternoon immediately following the conclusion of the second round.

Maguire is one stroke behind first place Trey Rule of Mercer after the freshman turned in a 70. The St. Petersburg native played a solid round of golf all day with three birdies and only one bogey to sit at 2-under.

Sophomore Rowin Caron is tied for tenth with an even par 72. Caron struggled a bit on the front nine with three bogeys, but was able to keep control and finish the second half with two birdies. Sophomore Hank Lebioda is tied for 19th after his 1-over 73. Lebioda led the team with six birdies on the day but was hindered by a double bogey on six and a triple bogey on 17.

"We left a lot of shots out there today whether it was on the greens or off the tee," said Lebioda. "We're a little disappointed with this round, we didn't come out with our best stuff but it's going to motivate us going into the weekend. We know that we control our destiny. We have the most talented young team in the entire country. All of us know that, all of us believe that, it's just a matter of getting out of our own way, doing what we need to do, going what we know how to do and going out and winning this tournament."

Cristobal Del Solar sat at even par through 16 holes today until he went 3-over on the last two. Finishing the day with a 3-over 75, the junior is tied for 34th. Freshman Harry Ellis started the morning with a birdie on hole one and then back to even par after a bogey on three. He played solid golf the remainder of the round except a pair of double bogeys to slide him back tied for 41st with a 4-over 74.

Florida State has four individuals playing in the tournament with freshman Josh Lee tied for tenth with an even par 72. Senior Joaquin Lolas is tied for 24th with a 2-over 74 while freshman Collin Engelhardt is tied for 54th with a 6-over 78. Freshman Anthony Alex, a late addition due a player pulling out with an injury, has an 8-over 80 to sit tied for 67th.


FSU Finishes Second At Seminole Intercollegiate.

Florida State tied for second with USF, six strokes behind first place Mercer.

March 15, 2014

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 12 Florida State men's golf team finished tied for second at the Seminole Intercollegiate after playing 26 holes on Saturday. The Seminoles now have a team title and two second place finishes this year. Senior Joaquin Lolas tied for third at the Southwood Golf Club, the top finish by a Seminole.

The field started the second round of the tournament bright and early at 8:30am to fit in two rounds of golf on Saturday. The team had a strong start with a 7-under 279 second round to move the team up to second place after starting the day at fourth. The team struggled in the third round with a 5-over 293 but managed to stay tied for second despite a strong showing by USF. Mercer won their second tournament of the year with an 8-under 856, six strokes ahead of Florida State and USF.

"We didn't execute today, we played a good week last week but I'm not sure if our guys thought they can come here and play well because they were playing at home," said head coach Trey Jones. "It got difficult for them and they didn't handle the challenges. It's a young team and we're going to learn from that and move on. If we can be a better team at the end of the year, then it's productive. It was disappointing but we've got to play better than we did today. There is an opportunity for us to get better through our experiences this week. Every time you go out it's a different day."

While the five-man team was playing competing for the team score, Florida State had four individuals competing in the individual standings. Senior Joaquin Lolas had his best showing at Florida State finishing tied for third with a 3-under 213. He posted a tournament low 67 in the morning making six birdies and one bogey for 5-under. He played even par golf in the third round with only one birdie and bogey for a 72.

"My main goal for today was to be patient," said Lolas. "I was able to play well in the morning but unfortunately the putts didn't drop in the afternoon. Overall it feels really good to be back competing and seeing my hard work start to pay off."

Freshman Harry Ellis turned in his best round of his collegiate career with a 5-under 67, which was also tied for the lowest round of the tournament. The Southampton, England, native teed off from eight and carded a birdie which would be just one of six in the round. With only one bogey, on 18, he finished the morning with a 5-under 67.

Freshman Jack Maguire also started the morning off with a birdie while teeing off from the fifth hole. He finished out the morning with back-to-back birdies on one and two to finish the morning with a 70. Sophomore Hank Lebioda had a strong showing of a 71 which was highlighted by making a 25 foot putt for birdie on 18. Freshman Cristobal Del Solar also posted a 71 in the second round.

Without taking a break, the teams continued play right into the third round. Due to potential bad weather on Sunday, the teams played two rounds on Saturday.

Sophomore Rowin Caron started the third round with two bogeys but proceeded to make six birdies in eight holes to keep the team's hope alive for second place. He finished the round with a 2-under 70 and finished the event tied for eighth with a 2-under 214.

"Obviously we're upset we didn't do better in the end," said Caron. "Personally I didn't play very well; I was struggling with some short game shots and made some unnecessary bogeys. I managed to keep it together in the end for my round. We wanted to do better, especially at our home tournament. We can just get better from here."

Maguire also finished the tournament tied for eighth. Despite starting the third round four-over through ten holes, the freshman remained calm under pressure and came up with two birdies to lower his round to a 74. Ellis had his best finish at Florida State tied for 16th with a 2-over 218. Lebioda finished one stroke behind his teammate tied for 21st while Del Solar finished 28th with a 220.

"I definitely know we didn't put our best rounds out there," said Lebioda. "Despite that we hung in there tough and fought through a couple of adversities. It hurts losing our home tournament and not defending our own turf. It brought us back down to Earth after the 41-under par last week at USF. It's a reality check which we need with being such a young team. When you have such great success, you have to realize what you did to get there; you put in the hard work and preparation. We are going to learn from this and grow from this and come out playing even stronger next time."

Maguire Leads Valspar Invitational After Two Rounds.

Florida State is tied for sixth after 36 holes on Monday.

March 24, 2014

PALM CITY, FL - After two rounds of golf at the Valspar Invitational at the Floridian Golf Cub, freshman Jack Maguire leads the tournament as the No. 12-ranked Florida State men's golf teams sits tied for sixth place with a 7-under 561.

"We had a perfect day to play golf for the first 30 holes," said head coach Trey Jones. "The final six were in a steady rain fall. I was glad to see us improve as the day went on and play one of the better rounds in the afternoon."

After a difficult first round, the Seminoles sat in 10th place with a 2-under 282. Maguire, the No. 38-ranked player according to Golfstat, was the only Seminole to turn in a below par scorecard. He posted a 6-under 65 by drilling a 20-foot putt for eagle on the sixth hole and combining that with four birdies.

"Jack came out and executed at a high level from the start and was 4-under through his first four holes," continued Jones. "He played solid golf throughout the day and put the team in a position to have a chance to win tomorrow. Each of the other players did some good things today and some things they need to improve on."

Senior Joaquin Lolas and sophomore Rowin Caron each posted a 1-over 72 while freshman Harry Ellis contributed the final score to the team total with a 2-over 73. Sophomore Hank Lebioda had a 4-over 75. The field went straight into the second round.

Maguire continued his stellar play as he made six more birdies during the round. With only one bogey, he posted a 5-under 66 for a 11-under 131 on the day. He leads the tournament by two strokes over LSU's No. 20 Stewart Jolly.

Lebioda played a completely different round of golf as he improved five strokes from his earlier round. He sat at 3-under for the round until a double bogey hindered him on the last hole. He finished the day with a 3-over 145, tied for 52nd. Ellis and Caron are also tied for 52nd after they each had a 72 and 73, respectively, in the second round.

Lolas is tied for 40th after an even par 71 in the second round. He has a 1-over 143 on the day.

No. 3 Oklahoma State and No. 4 Georgia Tech are tied for first with a 14-under 554.

PALM CITY, FL - The No. 12 Florida State men's golf team closed out the Valspar Invitational at the Floridian Golf Club on Tuesday tied for seventh. Battling a difficult course in rain and wind, freshman Jack Maguire finished the tournament tied for third in the 15-team field.

The Seminoles finished the third round with a 6-over 290 for a three-day total of 851, good for 1-under par. No. 4 Georgia Tech won the tournament with a 15-under 837.

"I am proud of our effort today," said head coach Trey Jones. "Rain and wind made the golf course play more difficult today. We did not take care of the par five holes today as a team. There were a lot of positives that we can build on."

Maguire, ranked No. 38 in the nation by Golfstat, started the day in first place but posted three bogeys on the day including two on the final holes. With a birdie on the sixth hole, he turned in a 2-over 73 to finish the tournament 9-under, three strokes behind first place Ollie Schniederjans of Georgia Tech.

This is the seventh tournament (out of eight this year) a Seminole has finished in the top ten and the 14th finish for an individual in the top 10.

"Jack played another great tournament and will use this experience the next time he has a lead going into the final round," concluded Jones.

Sophomore Hank Lebioda posted the best round of the day for the Seminoles with a 2-under 69. After starting the morning 3-over through the first three holes, he bounced back and carded five birdies to finish the round. He finished the tournament with a 1-over 214 to finish tied for 27th.

Senior Joaquin Lolas finished tied for 36th with a 4-over 217. He and sophomore Rowin Caron both turned in a 74 on Tuesday. Caron finished the tournament with a 6-over 219 to tie for 47th. Freshman Harry Ellis wrapped up 54 holes with a 7-over 78 to finish tied for 59th with a 223.

Maguire Wins Mason Rudolph Championship By Seven Strokes.

Florida State finished the tournament in eighth place.

FRANKLIN, TN - Jack Maguire turned in a 5-under 66 on Sunday to cement his seven-stroke win at the Mason Rudolph Men's Championship. This marks the freshman's second medalist honor of the spring. The 12th-ranked Florida State men's golf team moved up two spots during the day to finish eighth at the Vanderbilt Legends Club.

"It's obvious that Jack played a great three rounds of golf this weekend," said head coach Trey Jones. "To win a tournament by seven strokes is amazing, but to win one by seven with 12 players in the field ranked in the top 100 is a testament to his talent level."

Starting the day on the 10th hole, Maguire once again got out to a remarkable start with four birdies in six holes. He finished the round with a total of eight birdies to finish with a 66. He led the field with 18 birdies in three rounds to finish the tournament with a 10-under 203.

"I'm really proud of how I handled myself over the last two rounds," said Maguire. "Playing in a tournament with many high caliber players is always a great challenge and to come out on top is an honor. It's unfortunate the team didn't play well, but we know what we need to work on. I will definitely use this momentum going into postseason."

The team posted its best round of the weekend with a 5-over 289, a nine stroke improvement from the previous round. They finished the tournament with a 35-over 887 with No. 1 Alabama winning the team title with a 5-under 847.

"We tell our guys you have to be good in three areas, drive, wedge game and putter," continued Jones. "We hit our wedges well this week."

Freshman Josh Lee played his best round of the tournament Sunday as he added a 2-over 73 to the team score. He finished the tournament with a 17-over 230 to finish 59th. Sophomore Hank Lebioda carded a 5-over 76 and finished tied for 42nd with a 12-over 225.

Senior Joaquin Lolas also played his best round of the tournament Sunday with a 3-over 74. He finished tied for 60th with an 18-over 231. Wrapping up the line-up was sophomore Rowin Caron as he carded a three-day total of 25-over 238 to finish tied for 76th.

Playing as an individual, freshman Cristobal Del Solar finished the tournament tied for 70th with a 21-over 234.

Florida State Leads ACC Championship After First Round.

Sophomore Hank Lebioda leads the team with a 4-under 68.

April 25, 2014

NEW LONDON, NC – The No. 19 Florida State men’s golf team fought through heavy rain and strong winds Friday to sit atop the leaderboard after the first round of the ACC Championship at Old North State Club. The team posted a 4-under 284 and holds a four stroke lead over second place Georgia Tech.

“Solid start to the tournament but we know it is just the start,” said head coach Trey Jones. “I am proud of how the guys handled themselves when the wind and rain picked up on the back nine. Our young guys are learning the course and will feel more comfortable with each round.”

Sophomore Hank Lebioda leads the team after turning in a 4-under 68. Lebioda is in second place after carding a 34 on both the front and back nine with five birdies on the day. He is three strokes behind Georgia Tech’s Ollie Schniederjans.

“Hank’s game has been better than his results lately,” continued Jones. “He kept the ball in a position to score all day today. He is our team captain and played like it today.”

Freshman Cristobal Del Solar also came in under par with a 1-under 71 and is tied for sixth. Del Solar turned in three birdies while freshman Jack Maguire turned in two. Maguire is tied for 15th with an even par 72.

Senior Joaquin Lolas had a 73 and is tied for 21st while sophomore Rowin Caron turned in a 4-over 76 and is tied for 43rd.

“We want our guys to keep having fun and gain confidence every day,” concluded Jones. “If we do that, we will give ourselves a chance on Sunday.”


Seminoles In Second Place After Two Rounds.

Florida State has three student-athletes in the top ten.

April 26, 2014

NEW LONDON, NC - In perfect weather, the No. 19 Florida State men's golf team posted another 4-under 284 and is now 8-under after two rounds. The Seminoles are in second place, only two strokes behind Georgia Tech. The Seminoles tee off at 11:30 Sunday at the Old North State Club.

"One of our goals coming into the tournament, with this talented group of people in North Carolina, is we've got to have a chance to win going into tomorrow," said head coach Trey Jones. "If we play a great round of golf tomorrow, who knows what will happen. We've done what we've wanted to do up to this point and I'm proud of the guys for that."

Florida State had a strong performance on day two with all five golfers carding an even par 72 or better. Sophomore Hank Lebioda, redshirt-freshman Cristobal Del Solar and freshman Jack Maguire are all in the top 10 after 36 holes.

"Early on today our younger players, our freshmen, lost some patience but managed to stay in there," continued Jones. "What I'm most happy with is we threw out an even par, an even par was our high round. All our guys feel good about their games going into tomorrow and that's what it's going to take, it's going to take five guys to go out there and do that. If we play loose and free, who knows what's going to happen."

Lebioda made two birdies on the back nine to secure his 1-under 71 and is in third place with a 139, only four strokes out of first place. Maguire posted three birdies on the day with one coming on the eighth hole. With his second shot landing on the fringe of the green, Maguire chipped his shot in from 30 feet away. He sits tied for ninth with a 143.

Del Solar finished the day with a 72 and has a two-day total of 143 and is tied for ninth. On the 16th hole, Del Solar hit an amazing second shot with the ball landing about a foot from the hole. He tapped the ball in for his last birdie of the day.

Sophomore Rowin Caron carded the best round of the day with a 2-under 70. He started the morning strong with a birdie on the second hole and posted all par scores through the 10th hole. Caron made two more birdies and was sitting at 3-under until the 16th hole when his ball made an unfortunate bounce off a rake and into the water. He rebounded from the double bogey with a birdie on 18 to finish strong. He moved up 18 spots and is tied for 25th.

Senior Joaquin Lolas carded a 72 on Sunday and sits tied for 19th with a 1-over 145 after two rounds. After a 2-over 38 on the front nine, he started the back nine with back-to-back birdies on 11 and 12. Lolas also found success on sixteen with his second shot landing five feet from the pin and putted it in for birdie.


Florida State Places Second At ACCs.

Three golfers finished the tournament in the top ten.

April 27, 2014

NEW LONDON, NC - The Seminoles came out with their best round of the ACC Championship on Sunday but came up short to finish second to Georgia Tech. The No. 19-ranked Florida State men's golf team carded an 11-under at the Old North State Club on Sunday for a three-day total of 19-under 845. Three Seminoles finished the tournament in the top 10.

"I don't feel like we lost this golf tournament," said head coach Trey Jones. "I feel like Georgia Tech played a great round at a time where they needed it. We did what we could do, but they just played a better round than we did today.

"I'm happy with our guys; we did a lot of good things out there. We hung in there; we talked about it before we went out that if we get off to a slow start how to handle it. We did get off to a slow start and they handled it beautifully for a young team."

Freshman Jack Maguire posted his best round of the tournament to move up five spots and finish tied for fourth. His 5-under 67 on Sunday placed him at 210 for the weekend after making six birdies on the day. Maguire's tee shot landed in the trees on the second hole, but his next shot landed on the green which allowed him to putt the ball in for birdie. He followed up with back-to-back birdies on seven and eight to finish the front nine at 3-under.

Sophomore Hank Lebioda started the day playing even par golf until the 12th hole when he made birdie. A bogey on 14 set him back to par until the last hole which he birdied after chipping the ball onto the green a foot away from the pin. He finished the tournament tied for fourth place with a three day score of 210.

Redshirt freshman Cristobal Del Solar earned his second top ten finish of the year with a 4-under 212 on the tournament. His best round of the week came on Sunday as he turned in a 3-under 69 after making four birdies on the day.

Senior Joaquin Lolas finished the tournament tied for 18th after a 2-under 70 on Sunday. After a bogey on eight, he turned in three straight birdies to bring him to 2-under. After another bogey on 17, his second shot on 18 ended on the fringe which he proceeded to send close to the hole and putted for birdie. He finished the tournament with a 1-under 215.

Sophomore Rowin Caron turned in a 1-under 71 Sunday to finish the tournament with a 1-over 217 which tied for 23rd. After a double bogey on six, he birdied the short, downhill hole seven to put himself back on par. Caron finished the back nine 1-under after a birdie on 18.

"They know what it takes to win this kind of golf tournament now," continued Jones. "We'll learn from it without a question. Hats off to Georgia Tech for the way they played today. Their experience paid off. I'm extremely proud of our guys. It was a great week for us, we played well; we just got beat."

Seminoles In Fifth Place After Two Rounds.

Florida State had a 6-under 278 second round to move into fifth place.

May 16, 2014

RALEIGH, NC - Three Seminoles turned in under-par scores Friday to move the No. 17 Florida State men's golf team into fifth place at the NCAA Raleigh Regional. The Seminoles shot a 6-under 278 in the second round at the par-71 Lonnie Poole Golf Course. The team tees off at 7:50 a.m. Saturday from the first hole.

After the restart of the first round, which was suspended Thursday afternoon due to weather, the Seminoles finished the first round in ninth place. After a short break, the team went back on the course to play the second round. With three players in the top 20 of individual standings, Florida State is now in contention to be one of the five teams that advance to the NCAA Championships next week.

"After a poor finish to the morning round, the guys rebounded with a solid second round," said head coach Trey Jones. "I knew all five guys were playing really well leading into the tournament. I am proud of them for sticking to their game plan, showing some discipline and executing their shots as the day progressed. I am confident we will get another good round tomorrow."

Both freshmen, Jack Maguire and Cristobal Del Solar, turned in a 73 in the first round and both proceeded to make a five-stroke improvement in the second round with a pair of 68s. Maguire shot a 3-under on the back nine to solidify his tie for 11th place while Del Solar started the round with a 2-under on the front nine.

Sophomore Hank Lebioda is at an even par (142) for the tournament and is tied for 18th. He posted a 73 in the first round and the followed up with four birdies in the second round to finish the day with a 69.

Senior Joaquin Lolas is tied for 35th with a 36-hole total of 2-over 144. In the first round, he made five birdies and five bogeys to score a 71. In the second round, he proceeded to make all pars except for two bogeys for a 73.

Sophomore Rowin Caron is tied for 59th with a 8-over 149.


Men's Golf Advances To National Championships.

Cristobal Del Solar led the team as he finished tied for ninth.

May 17, 2014

RALEIGH, N.C. -For the fourth time in five years, the No. 17 Florida State men's golf team advanced to the NCAA Championships after finishing in fifth place at the NCAA Raleigh Regional. The Seminoles finished the tournament with an 8-over 860 on the par-71 Lonnie Poole Golf Course at NC State.

"We talk about finding a way to score when you don't have things going as planned," said head coach Trey Jones. "These guys stepped up on the last hole and hit five perfect drives and five perfect iron shots on the toughest hole on the course. This is a great experience for our young team that will only help us in the future. To qualify without Jack (Maguire) playing well is a tribute to each player."

Freshman Cristobal Del Solar had his third top ten finish of the season as he placed tied for ninth. Del Solar led the team Saturday with an even par 71 to finish the tournament with a 1-under 212.

Sophomore Hank Lebioda posted a 73 in the third round to finish the tournament with a 2-over 215 to finish tied for 20th. Freshman Jack Maguire shot a 75 Saturday to finish the regional tied for 25th with a 3-over 216.

Senior Joaquin Lolas posted a 4-over 75 to close out the tournament and finished tied for 36th with a 219. Sophomore Rowin Caron finished tied for 49th with a 223.

First Round Suspended By Rain.

Cristobal Del Solar is currently tied for second with a 2-under par.

May 23, 2014

HUTCHINSON, KS - After enduring eight hours and ten minutes of weather delays, the first round of the NCAA Championship was suspended at the Prairie Dunes Country Club. The Florida State men's golf team is currently tied for sixth at 1-over par, four strokes behind first place Oregon.

Freshman Cristobal Del Solar leads the Seminoles at 2-under through nine holes and is tied for second in the individual standings. He birdied the short, uphill hole four. After a bogey on six, he bounced back with another birdie on the seventh hole. He finished the day with a birdie on the difficult hole nine and was heading to the 10th hole when play was halted for the final time.

Three Seminoles, freshman Jack Maguire and sophomores Hank Lebioda and Rowin Caron, are sitting at 1-over par. Maguire started the morning with a bogey on one but played even par golf the rest of the day. Maguire had a huge save for par on the seventh hole when his shot landed in the tall grass next to the green. He chipped it out and putted the ball in his last hole of the day.

Lebioda also started the day with a bogey on the uphill hole one. He recovered with a birdie on the fourth hole and was playing even par golf until a bogey on his last hole, the eighth. Caron managed to make it through 10 holes and was a 1-under through the front nine. When the rain started to come down, he double bogeyed the 10th hole with play stopping moments later.

Senior Joaquin Lolas is 2-over par through 11 holes. He carded all pars until a double bogey on eight. After the turn, he made a birdie on 10 and then bogeyed 11 to finish the day.

After pushing the first tee times back 40 minutes, the Seminoles were able to play for an hour and 20 minutes until the horns were sound signaling the players back into the clubhouse.

After a five our delay, the teams were sent back on the course playing for about 85 minutes until weather once again sent the teams off the course. After waiting for over two hours, play was then suspended for the day.


Del Solar Leads Seminoles After 26 Hour First Round.

Cristobal Del Solar is currently tied for seventh with a 3-under par.

May 24, 2014

HUTCHINSON, KS - Although it took over 26 hours, the Florida State men's golf team finished the first round of the NCAA Championship on Saturday morning. After play was suspended Friday night at the Prairie Dunes Country Club, the Seminoles resumed play this morning at 7:00 a.m. Central time.

Florida State started the day on holes eight through 12 and finished the round at 9:45 a.m., 26 hours and 45 minutes after the round was supposed to start. After plenty of rain and delays, the Seminoles finished the round at 6-over 286 to finish the round tied for 22nd.

"This is an extremely difficult golf course that doesn't let up," said head coach Trey Jones. "But this is as easy as we'll see it with no wind this morning. We just needed to come out and play a little better than we did. The rain delays yesterday were aggravating but that's part of golf, it took nearly 27 hours to play 18 holes but this is an outdoor sport. It tries your patience and makes you tired, but we've got this one behind us. The guys needed to learn the golf course and need to execute a little better tomorrow."

Redshirt freshman Cristobal Del Solar started the morning on the 10th hole and made all pars until the final hole when he posted a birdie. Del Solar finished with a 3-under 67 to tie his previous low round score. He also carded a 67 at the USF Invitational on March 4. Del Solar was tied for eighth at the end of the first round.

"Cristobal just keeps getting better and better," continued Jones. "He has the best mindset on the team for a course like this. He's a tough kid; if he hits it in a bad spot, it doesn't bother him. He has a ball flight that he knows is going in one direction and he can eliminate part of the golf course. He's going to continue to play well and I'm proud of everything that he's done."

Hank Lebioda started the morning in the middle of the ninth fairway to finish the hole with a par. On this 10th hole, he carded a bogey but gained the stroke back on the 14th hole. The sophomore's second shot landed six feet from the hole for the putt. He finished the round 1-over par and was tied for 63rd.

Freshman Jack Maguire, sophomore Rowin Caron and senior Joaquin Lolas all finished the round with a 4-over 74. Maguire started with a bogey on eight and ended up at 5-over until a birdie on 14, he closed out the round with pars on the last four holes. Lolas started the day on the 12th hole and finished the day with two bogeys. Caron started the day on the 11th hole and then carded bogeys on holes 11, 12 and 18.


Weather Continues To Win At NCAAs.

Florida State was at 2-over par when the horn blew.

May 25, 2014

HUTCHINSON, KS - The third round of the NCAA Championship started at 4:40 p.m. Sunday night and was stopped due to weather at 6:45 p.m. at the Prairie Dunes Country Club. This marks the fifth weather delay of the tournament with the round being suspended at 7:33 p.m. Central time.

The Seminoles were off to a strong start at 2-over through nine holes. Sophomore Rowin Caron is leading the Seminoles this round after starting his round with a birdie on the seventh hole.

May 26, 2014

HUTCHINSON, KS - The Florida State men's golf team finished the third round of the NCAA Championships with their best round of the event, a 3-over 283 to finish stroke play in 24th place with a 30-over 870. The Seminoles resumed the third round at 7:30 a.m. Central time at the Prairie Dunes Country Club after play was stopped Sunday night.

"We came back with a good round," said head coach Trey Jones. "The guys had good attitudes. We talk about finished every rep in the workout room and finishing every drill at practice. Hopefully that mentality carried over to finish every hole in this 54-hole tournament when our ultimate goal was not attainable going into the final round. I'm proud of them for that."

Every Seminole improved their second round score by at least two strokes. The top 15 teams finish the third round Monday afternoon beginning at noon. Final standings will be updated tonight.

"We have a lot of things to work on," continued Jones. "We've got to do some things that's going to prevent us from being in this situation next year. With four guys coming back we can do that, but we're all going to have to get better."

Florida State was 1-over on the day while being led by freshman Jack Maguire. Maguire started the day even par, but made four birdies to finish the day with a 3-under 67. He made a nine stroke improvement from the second round to finish the tournament with a 7-over 217.

Sophomore Hank Lebioda bounced back with his best round of the tournament with an even-par 70. Lebioda made a bogey on the first hole but regained control with a birdie on the fifth hole to finish at even par. He had the best final score for Seminoles in the three rounds with a 4-over 214.

Freshman Cristobal Del Solar started the morning on the 17th hole and carded two birdies on the front nine, two and seven. A bogey on his last hole, eight, placed him at 2-over on the day. He finished the tournament with a 5-over 215.

Despite starting the day at 1-under, sophomore Rowin Caron had a triple bogey and two straight bogeys to place him at 4-over on the round. He finished the tournament with a 14-over 224.

Senior Joaquin Lolas finished his collegiate career with a birdie on his last hole. He finished the round with a 4-over 74 and finished the tournament with a 16-over 226.
