Seaside, Calif. – Lynn University's men's golf team shot a 921 over 54-holes at the Otter Invitational on the Bayonet Course to finish ninth out of 18 teams. Martin Cancino posted the low score for the Fighting Knights with a 226 to finish just outside the top-10.
The duo of Cancino and Whitley powered through the difficult 6,869-yard, par 72 course to log rounds of 75. Whitley shot 17 pars on the final day with one triple bogey to shoot a 228 overall and tie for 27th. Cancino finished with a 226 and entered into a tie for 13th place.
Jose Miranda was not able to replicate his one-over 73 from the second round, instead closing out the tournament with a 78 for a 234 total. Keith Greene and Fraser Thain finished one shot off each other on the last day with scores of 82 and 83.
Lynn shot 310 as a team, seventh best of the afternoon. Nova Southeastern claimed first place with an 885 with British Columbia (890) overtaking host Cal-State Monterey Bay (893) for second place. Chico State (907) also made a move into the top-five, surpassing Barry (908) and dropping Simon Fraser (911) into sixth.
"We got off to a good start in the first few holes but started to struggle down the stretch," said head coach Andrew Danna. "We'll look to correct some things in the coming days and get ready to go again next week in Orlando."
The Blue & White conclude their fall season in Orlando, Fla., on Monday, October 27, when they take part in the McDonough Cup, hosted by Rollins. Fans can receive in-tournament updates by following @Lynn_Knights on Twitter and Instagram.
