PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. – Two Palm Beach Atlantic men’s golfers had the honor to compete in the 29th Annual PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship over the weekend, and had outstanding finishes to show for their participation. 

Freshman David Liu and sophomore Ben Murray both finished in the top five of the individual portion of the tournament, which was played at the Ryder and Wanamaker courses of the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida.  The men’s team event was won by Alabama State University and the women’s team event was won for the 12th time by Bethune-Cookman University. 

Ben Murray, who was second in scoring average for the ‘Fish this season, fired a 72 in the opening round, which led the tournament at the time.  Murray’s second round 79 and final round 76 were good for a fourth place finish for the weekend. 

David Liu, after shooting a first round 76, shot one of only two rounds in the individual tournament in the 60’s, and finished second overall with a score of 219 (76-69-74), which was only two strokes away from the leader, Domonique Worthen, from LeMoyne-Owen College.

These two underclassmen will certainly look to anchor the Sailfish golf team in future seasons, with the 2015 fall season beginning in September.
