Joining Shine is Lou Walsh, Brendan Quintana, Scott Kim and Riley McGraw. Mickey Sutton will be playing as the extra/individual player. The men are looking to claim their first championship since winning back-to-back titles in 2006 and 2007.
The MAAC championships conclude on Sunday afternoon and will be highlighted on ESPN3 as the ninth and eighteenth hole will broadcast live, starting at 10:00 a.m.
The winning team will receive the important automatic bid to the 2014 NCAA Division I Golf Championships.
