    Last week’s Southern Highlands Collegiate featured 18 of the top-30 players in the PGA TOUR University Velocity Global Ranking, and Florida’s Yuxin Lin prevailed for his first collegiate victory. With the win, Lin earned a sponsor exemption into the Shriners Children’s Open this October, and he became the third Gator to win this spring, joining Fred Biondi (Sea Best Invitational) and Ricky Castillo (VyStar Credit Union Gators Invitational).

    In the team competition, Illinois erased a 10-stroke deficit in the final round and won by two over Texas. Tommy Kuhl led the Illini with a T3 finish, while Adrien Dumont de Chassart (T17) topped the final-round lineup with a 5-under 67. William Mouw (T5) closed with a 65 and led Pepperdine to a third-place finish, and Austin Greaser (T5) paced North Carolina to a fourth-place finish in his return from injury.
