Ortiz Wins Puerto Rico Amateur Championship

San Juan, Puerto Rico - Lynn University women's golfer Kristina Ortiz had an exceptional start to her summer following a one-stroke victory at the 2017 Puerto Rico Golf Association Championship.  The tournament took place at the TPC Dorado Beach East Course.

Ortiz led from start to finish in the 54-hole event, posting an opening round score of 73 en route to a 227 total and one-stroke victory over Yae Eun Kim.  The Guaynabo, P.R., native, was the only golfer in the field to post two rounds of 74 or better.

In her second year with the Blue & White, Ortiz was third on the team with a 76.19 stroke average and four top-10 finishes, including tying for fourth at both the Sunshine State Conference Championship and NCAA Super Region 2 Tournament.
