The 27th Annual Ford Mays Liberty University Athletics Golf Tournament was successfully contested at London Downs Golf Club in Forest, Va., on June 9. A total of 224 golfers battled for prizes in morning and afternoon flights. There were 28 teams that played in both the morning and afternoon.

The winning team from Daktronics was captained by Josh Francois. He was partnered with Dan Maxam, Charley Backlet and Chad Yost. Their team carded a 53 (19-under par). 

The top 31 teams were awarded prizes on the day. In addition, 35 golfers received door prizes (supplied by Lynchburg area businesses) for such things as dinners at quality dining establishments, golf equipment and Liberty apparel. Every participant received a substantial gift bag which included a Liberty Nike Dri-fit golf polo, Nike hat, tournament golf balls, coupons and promotional items supplied by sponsors.

The date for the 28th Annual Liberty University Athletics Golf Tournament has been tentatively set for June 8, 2018.
