Lynn won its first-ever NCAA Division II Men’s Golf Championship on Friday as the No. 3-seeded Knights defeated West Florida 3-2 in a championship round that came down to the final hole.

The two schools alternated match wins — UWF’s Carlos Marrero won by eight strokes, Lynn’s Toto Gana won by three, UWF’s Henry Westmoreland IV won by five and Lynn’s Manuel Torres won by three — throughout the final day, as the championship came down to the final pairing of Lynn’s Carlos Bustos and UWF’s Chandler Blanchet. The two golfers were tied down the stretch until Bustos birdied the 17th hole, giving him a one-stroke lead.

Bustos and Blanchet teed off on the 18th hole with Blanchet needing to win the hole for West Florida to win the championship. Both golfers bogied, giving Lynn the 3-2 win and its first men’s golf national title.
