Head coach J.C. Deacon and the boys have something cooking down in Gainesville.
For the second consecutive year the Florida men’s golf team defended its home turf, winning the Gators Invitational for back-to-back wins to begin the spring season. The Gators finished atop the leaderboard at 29 under, five strokes clear of runners-up Georgia and Auburn.
“To shoot 15 under and come back to win the title in those conditions while playing at home is so special,” said Deacon. “I’m really happy and proud of our guys and they truly showed how great they can be today. 15-under on your home course in the final round is certainly a great accomplishment.”
Florida’s starting lineup was comprised of three sophomores and two freshman, a not-so-surprising fact given the team has just three upperclassmen on the roster. Sophomore Yuxin Lin, an All-American transfer from USC, led the Gators with a T-6 finish while freshman Joe Pagdin earned his first collegiate top-10 finish.
