Port St. Lucie, FL - The Fayetteville State University men's golf team captured their third consecutive Division II Championship on Sunday at the 22nd Annual PGA National Minority Collegiate Golf Championship at the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, FL. With a three-day total of 9-over-par (873), the Broncos took home the title over Lincoln University of Jefferson City, Mo., who finished in second place, nine strokes behind.
Senior Ian Milne led FSU with a final-round even-par 72, sealing the championship with a 12-foot putt for birdie. Milne led in the individual standing after all three rounds.
"I just wanted to help my team win for the third consecutive year," said Milne, who is playing in his third Championship. "I had a few struggles during my round but was able to finish off the tournament with a birdie at the final hole."
"I did not make any bogeys today, even though I felt like I hit the ball much better yesterday," said Lynn, who fired a 69 in his opening round. "I did hit 16 greens in regulation during my round today, which gave me a chance to score a little better."
CIAA Champion Virginia State finished in third (903), St. Augustine's in fifth (961), and Johnson C. Smith finished eighth (1078) in the final rankings.
This marks the fifth PGA Championship for Coach Raymond McDougal (1995, 1996, 2006, 2007, 2008).
Nearly 200 contestants from 47 colleges and universities, representing 14 countries comprised the field for the 2008 PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship.
