Kjettrup Has Record Performance in Win at Watersound

WATERSOUND, Fla. – Junior Frederik Kjettrup of the 11th-ranked Florida State Men’s Golf team earned an emphatic win at the Watersound Invitational, shooting a record-low 18-under par (66-67-65) for his second career collegiate victory on Tuesday afternoon at Shark’s Tooth Golf Club.

Kjettrup’s 18-under is the lowest three-round score in program history. He eclipsed a 56-year old record held by Seminole Alum Carl DiCesare, who had a 17-under at the Buckhaults Golf Tournament on March 17, 1967.

With top-ranked Gordon Sargent of Vanderbilt trying to charge up the leaderboard, Kjettrup’s final-round 65 proved he wouldn’t be denied. The Denmark native won at Watersound by five strokes, carding nine birdies in his final round to put an exclamation point on a huge weekend for the All-American.

For the second straight year, Kjettrup put together a collegiate tournament win. On March 22, 2022, he collected his first victory at the All-American Intercollegiate when he shot 3-under.

Throughout the Watersound Invitational, Kjettrup dominated the par 4 holes, totaling 8-under over the three rounds. He also led the field with an impressive 21 birdies in three rounds played.

The Seminoles finished in third place behind tournament winner Vanderbilt (ranked first nationally) and 12th-ranked Georgia Tech. FSU shot 24-under overall, using a 13-under final round to end its stay on a high note.

Sophomore Michael Mays had a breakout tournament, finishing as the top individual at 12-under to tie for fourth overall. Mays finished nine strokes ahead of the next closest individuals, which were Vanderbilt’s Reid Davenport, FSU’s Jack Bigham and Alabama’s Jones Free.

Junior Brett Roberts tied for ninth at 7-under (68-67-74). Redshirt junior Cole Anderson tied for 22nd at 2-under (71-75-68) along with sophomore Patrick McCann (76-66-72).

Florida State returns to the Cabo Collegiate held March 5-7 in Cabo, Mexico.
