BOCA RATON, Fla. – Lynn University men’s golf alumnus Daniel Young won his first career professional tournament following a victory at the Eagle Orchid Scottish Masters at Macdonald Spey Valley Resort.
Young shot rounds of 65-67-69 to finish 12-under par to clinch his first title on the PGA EuroPro Tour. The recent Lynn Hall of Fame inductee held off Richard Mansell, who shot a tournament-best 64 in the final round, to win by two shots. Mansell previously played at Nova Southeastern.
Young ended his time with the Blue and White in 2013 after a stellar four-year career in which he became the program’s first three-time All-American and first three-time All-Sunshine State Conference selection. He guided the men’s golf program to a pair of NCAA Division II National Championship runner-up finishes (2011 & 2013) and was the individual runner-up in 2011.
