Gators middle of pack at Nike Collegiate

Opening days for fall tournaments have been a mixed bag for the Gators. A miserable first day at the Carpet Capital Collegiate set the tone for a disappointing 13th-place finish. John Axelsen’s 64 on the opening round at last week’s Trinity Forest Invitational sparked a fourth-place finish for both Axelsen and the Gators.

Junior Sierra Brooks is in first place at Cougar Classic with a 7-under opening round. 

Men’s, women’s teams begin seasons

The women’s team was ranked 12th in the nation, and junior Sierra Brooks was named a Golfweek Preseason Second-Team All-American heading into the first tournament of the fall season. Both have proven themselves to be worthy of their preseason praise following their first day in their opening competition. The Gators are in the lead at the Cougar Classic after one round and Brooks is atop the individual leaderboard.
