PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. (seminoles.com) - Florida State and Kent State will play in a sudden victory playoff on Friday beginning at 11:00 a.m EST to determine the eighth and final team participant in the match play bracket of the 2012 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championship at the Riviera Golf Club. The Seminoles and the Golden Flashes finished tied with identical scores of 23 over par 875 after three rounds of stroke play.

The playoff will consist of two fivesomes, one with three players from one team, two from the other, and vice versa for the second fivesome. If the teams are tied after 18, they will go again at hole 10 and go back and forth until a winner is determined.

Florida State's senior All-American Brooks Koepka, the Seminoles' last golfer of the round, drained a six-foot putt for par on the 18th and final hole of the third round to keep the Seminoles tied and force a playoff between the two teams. Koepka was playing in the final group with Kent State's McKenzie Hughes who bogeyed his final hole to drop the Golden Flashes into a tie with the Seminoles with only Koepka left to finish out the hole. Koepka stepped up and made his final putt to keep the teams even.

The winner of the playoff between Florida State and Kent State will face top seeded Alabama in the first round of match play in the NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championship on Friday at 1:00 p.m. EST at the Riviera Country Club.
