Led by senior All-American John Pak, Florida State went wire-to-wire to win its own Seminole Intercollegiate against a field of college golf’s best last weekend.
The Seminoles earned their second victory of the spring, besting the field by nine strokes at Golden Eagle Country Club in Tallahassee. Florida State finished at 26 under after a 9-under final round, followed by Oklahoma State (-17) and Oklahoma (-12).
“I’m really proud of the guys and how they came out and won a golf tournament on a really good golf course against a really good field,” said head coach Trey Jones.
“When the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State and Duke and North Carolina State, when they decided to come here we’re like, ‘good.’ These guys are going to make us play well, they’re going to make us go out and execute. We had some goals early in the week, one was professionalism the other was toughness. They showed it.”

Pak was the low man for the third round with a 5-under 67, but his three-day score of 10 under wasn’t enough to catch Alexandre Fuchs, a Liberty senior from France who claimed the individual title at 11 under. Pak’s second-place finish is his best result since last year’s Seminole Intercollegiate, where he was the individual champion.
Florida State’s entire lineup finished under par for the tournament and placed inside the top 16: Cole Anderson (T-6, 6 under), Brett Roberts (T-11, 3 under), Vincent Norrman and Frederik Kjettrup (T-16, 2 under).
