DELAND, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) – The UCF men’s golf team entered Tuesday’s third and final round of the Stetson/CFSC Invitational in fourth place and seven strokes off the lead.

UCF was led by Ricardo Gouveia, who took individual medalist honors for the tournament. Gouveia carded scores of 72-71-71=214 (-2). He edged USC Upstate’s Adam Goins and Bethune-Cookman’s Leon Fricker, who tied for second, but also tallied three-round totals of 214. Gouveia won the individual title in a playoff.
“I am so happy for our team and for Ricardo for finishing the fall season on a high note,” UCF head coach Bryce Wallor said. “We had a great comeback today and I am very appreciative of how hard our team fought for the win. We had four solid rounds posted today and Ricardo's playoff victory capped off the end to a good performance.”
The Knights’ final tally was 870, while Florida Gulf Coast was second at 873. Bethune-Cookman took third place with a final score of 878 and USC Upstate was fourth at 880.
