CANISIUS HEADS TO FLORIDA FOR MAAC GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP
• The Canisius golf team heads south this weekend to take part in the 2017 MAAC Golf Championship.
• The Golden Griffins enter this year's event ranked eighth among the nine MAAC schools. The Blue and Gold will start the 54-hole event Friday off the first tee at 7:30 a.m.
• Canisius placed eighth in this event last season. In 2013, the Griffs finished fourth, the program's best placement at the conference's championship tournament since 1997.
• The championship team at the MAAC Golf Championship earns the league's automatic berth into the 2016 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championship.
• Additionally, the individual champion at this event not only earns a bid into the 2017 NCAA Golf Championship, but also earns a spot in the 2017 Porter Cup, widely considered one of the premier amateur golf tournaments in the world.
