TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The Florida State men's golf team which is ranked as the No. 8 team in all of collegiate golf by GolfWeek Magazine, travels to Greensboro, Ga., to play in the Linger Longer Invitational March 26-28 at The Landing at Reynolds Plantation Golf Course. The Seminoles are fresh from their team championship at the Seminole Intercollegiate where they gained their third team championship of the year. Florida State was also victorious at the GolfWeek Challenge and Gary Koch Intercollegiate during the fall season. Florida State has one in-season tournament remaining before playing the annual ACC Championship at the Old North State Club at Uwharrie Point, N.C. The Seminoles' three victories this season is more than they earned during the 2008-09 season (one) and as many as they earned during the 2007-08 season (three).

No. 8 Florida State is joined by No. 1 Oklahoma State, No. 4 Texas A&M, No. 18 Georgia, No. 20 Georgia Tech, No. 22 Alabama, Charlotte, Coastal Carolina, Furman, Kennesaw State, Louisville, Mercer, Oklahoma, San Jose State, South Alabama and South Carolina Aiken in the 2010 Linger Longer Invitational at the Landing at Reynolds Plantation Golf Course. The event is co-hosted by Mercer University and Kennesaw State University. The Landing Course Is a Bob Cupp design that opened in 1986 and features a variety of holes that wrap around the shoreline of the lake that surrounds a spacious resort community on Lake Oconee.

Sophomore Brooks Koepka, who has earned five top 20 finishes in six events this year, is the No. 2 ranked collegiate golfer in the nation by GolfWeek Magazine. With a rating of 69.26 and a scoring average of 71.00 he is ranked just behind Russell Henley of the University of Georgia. Koepka, who finished second at the Mauna Lani Invitational, fourth at the Gary Koch Invitational and tied for fifth at the Brickyard Intercollegiate, is minus 10 strokes under par for the fall 2009 and spring 2010 seasons.

Florida State's Seath Lauer and Wesley Graham led the Seminoles' winning charge to the Seminole Intercollegiate tournament championship on the final day in a suspense-filled finish at Southwood Golf Course in Tallahassee. The Seminoles won their third tournament of the year, slipping past South Carolina by a one-stroke margin. Florida State had already secured the team title - its second Seminole Intercollegiate in three seasons - when South Carolina's Paul Woodbury outlasted Lauer on the fourth playoff hole. Lauer, the Seminoles' senior captain, shared low-stroke honors with Woodbury at 1-under, 212.
