LAKELAND, Fla. – Team Canada’s Adam Svensson continued his winning ways Tuesday, notching the second win of his junior season with a victory at the Matlock Collegiate Classic.

Svensson, 21, carded rounds of 67-67-70 for a 12-under 204, good for a two-stroke victory at the Lone Palm Golf Club. He recorded 14 birdies en route to his second individual win this season in as many events—he won the Guy Harvey Invitational in the fall.

The Surrey, B.C., native continues to roll for Barry University. He set a school record last year in his sophomore season with seven individual titles, winning the Jack Nicklaus award for the top golfer in Div II in the process.

Collectively, the Barry Buccaneers finished runner-up, 10 strokes behind champion Nova Southeastern. Svensson and the Bucs will tee-it-up again in the Warner Invitational in Sebring, Fla., Mar. 2–3.
