West Florida takes over the top spot in Division II Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll

Fresh off a win in their home tournament, the Argonaut Invitational at the Pensacola Country Club in Florida, West Florida has ascended to the top spot in the latest Division II Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll.

West Florida, which now has two team wins this spring, was second in the poll last time despite garnering 14 of the 26 first-place votes but this time around, the Argonauts had enough to overtake Lynn University, which drops just one spot to No. 2. Lincoln Memorial is third while Barry and Arkansas Tech are tied for fourth.
