NEW LONDON, N.C.-- Downpours, thunderstorms and lightning caused play to be suspended midway through the second round of the 53rd annual ACC Men's Golf Championship. Play was first halted at 9:10 a.m., shortly after players began teeing off at 8:30 a.m. Play resumed at 12:30 p.m. only to be stopped again 5:10 p.m.
Second-round play will resume Sunday at 10:00 a.m. The final round will begin simultaneously off the first tee.
Only two teams completed their second rounds, Boston College and Virginia. Clemson charged into the lead before play was halted. The Tigers are unofficially 20-under-par, 17-under in the second round, with six to nine holes left to play. Georgia Tech, the first-round leader, stands at unofficially 19-under, seven-under for the day, with 9 to 11 holes left. North Carolina, which is in the same pairing with Georgia Tech, is two strokes behind the Yellow Jackets at an unofficial 17-under-par.
Clemson's David May, who began the second round in a tie for 21st, surged into the individual lead as he stands at an unofficial seven-under-par. Five players are currently deadlocked in second place - Florida State's Matthew Savage, NC State's Nathan Spoon, Georgia Tech's Cameron Tringale and North Carolina's Robert Riesen and Chase MacFarland.
The conclusion of the ACC Championship will be played Sunday at the Old North State Club. The public is invited to attend and admission is free.
