Saturday, May 25, 2013

Four shots.

That's all that separated Barry from its opponent, Lynn, after the two teams split their match-play final 2-2-1 Friday at the NCAA Division II Men's Championship in Hershey, Pa. The ensuing tiebreaker went to Barry, which held a 403-399 advantage in total strokes.

It is the second national title for the Buccaneers, who also won in 2007.

Friday's championship match was played amidst cool temperatures, gusty winds and overcast skies, preventing any low scores from being posted – Barry's Adam Svensson shot the best round of the day at 4-over 75

Svensson and teammate Simon Forsslund won their matches, while Lynn's Filip Timmerman and Daniel Young won their matches. Marcus Segerstrom of Barry and Jose Andres Miranda of Lynn halved their match to force a tiebreaker.
