Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. – Lynn University's men's golf team returned to the links at the Guy Harvey Invitational and sits fifth out of 17 teams following 36-holes of competition. Martin Cancino is tied for sixth individually after posting a 66 in the morning on the PGA National Champions Course.
The Fighting Knights, ranked No. 4 in the most recent Golf Coaches Association of America/Nike Coaches Poll, shot 280 over the first 18-holes but gusty afternoon conditions pushed them towards a 296 to finish with a 584 overall total score. Top-ranked Barry leads the field with a 559, with Saint Leo trailing at 572 in second. Host and No. 2 Nova Southeastern shot 576 for third while Indianapolis is fourth at 583.
Cancino had his best 18-holes as a member of the Blue & White, shooting the six-under par 66 to grab a one-shot lead after the first round. A 76 pushed him back into the pack but his 142 ties him for sixth, seven strokes behind leader Adam Svensson from Barry.
Both Elliott Whitley and Keith Greene were steady on the day, turning in cards of 147 (73-74) and 148 (75-73) to finish tied for 24th and tied for 34th. Jose Miranda shook off some rust early in his first tournament with the Fighting Knights, knocking down a 78 before a five-shot improvement led to a 73 in the afternoon.
