St. Augustine, Florida – Records fell at the World Golf Invitational on Monday afternoon as Lynn University's women's golf team and Jessica Bradley from North Devon claimed top honours for the second consecutive year. 
 The Fighting Knights bested the tournament mark by seven shots with a 584 total while Bradley shot the lowest round in tournament history with a final round 68 on the 6,011-yard, par 72 Slammer and Squire course.
Sitting in 12th place at the start of the day, Bradley tied the program record, and her career-low, with a 68 to notch her 18th consecutive top-10 finish.  
The Bishop Nympton, England, native needs three more consecutive top-10 finishes to break the NCAA Division II record.  She now has six career tournament victories in the States after passing first-round leader Stephanie Tucker.
Samantha Smolen had the misfortune of shooting another stellar par round, only to finish second individually to teammate Bradley.  Smolen collected her 26th career top-10 finish in the process with the 144 total.
Lynn shot a four-under par 284 on the final day to leap Saint Leo and pull away from the 17 team field.  Host Flagler made the move into second place with a 595, followed by Barry (602), Florida Tech (604) and previous leader Saint Leo (605).  This is the Fighting Knights' second victory of the 2014-15 season.
Sophie Olley (Embry Riddle) finished best of the other Brits in the field of 90 players. She tied for 20th place on 151 with rounds of 74 and 77.
Daisy-May Kenny from Purley and West Florida team-mate Aimee Paterson from Hampshire tied for 26th place on 153. Daisy-May scored 77-76 and Aimee 76-77.
Hannah Robb (Embry Riddle) tied for 62nd spot on 162 with scores of 83 and 79. 
Aberdeen's Rachel Polson (Florida Tech) completed only one round, an 81.
