March 2012 Club Meeting with Trey Jones and Amy Bond
Join the Tallahassee Semnole Club in welcoming our FSU Men & Women's Golf coaches, Trey Jones and Amy Bond, to our March Meeting! This meeting will be held at Beef O' Brady's on Thomasville Rd. Social Hour Starts at 6 PM and our guest speakers will join us at 6:45 PM.
Under Head Coach Trey Jones Florida State enters the 2011-12 season having played in a school record six consecutive NCAA Championship tournaments. The Seminoles have advanced to the championship finals twice and finished in a tied for third place nationally in 2009 in Jones' first eight years at Florida State. One of the nation's most dynamic recruiters, Jones is nationally recognized as one of the top talent scouts in all of collegiate golf. His ability to recruit talented players, which in turn form solidly built teams, is one of the aspects of coaching that has made Jones one of the top coaches in Division I golf. Florida State's recruiting classes ranked fourth best in the nation in 2007, fifth best in 2008, sixth best in 2005 and among the nation's top 15 in 2006 and 2010. The Seminoles' recruiting class that arrived on campus for the fall of 2011 will certaily rank among the nation's best.
Coach Amy Bond is in her second season as Florida State's head coach as she returned to her alma mater in 2010 to continue the proud Seminole women's golf tradition which includes the 1981 A.I.A.W. national championship and 18 appearances in the last 21 years in the NCAA Championship tournament. Bond not only helped the Seminoles return to the NCAA Tournament in her first season, but she continued the tradition of individual success as senior Maria Salinas earned All-American and All-ACC honors. For the Seminole program, it marked the 11th consecutive season where at least one Florida State women's golfer has earned All-ACC honors.
