Georgia Tech and North Carolina Share ACC Men's Golf Championship
April 23, 2006
Georgia Tech was led by freshman, Cameron Tringale who birdied the last hole to capture the individual medalist title.
Yellow Jacket Head Coach Bruce Heppler said, "We played really well today and that is all you can control. So I am happy with being co-champions. You want to win, but everybody played well."
North Carolina's Head Coach John Inman became the first individual to capture ACC Championships as both a player and head coach. He won medalist honors as a player in 1982. Inman said," It was fitting that the last group played because there was a possibility of that last group not playing that second playoff hole. They wanted to play, they wanted to decide it. We're real happy with it."
Wake Forest's Kyle Reifers finished second individually at 207. Tied for third at 208 was Clemson's Brian Duncan and North Carolina's Robert Riesen.
Clemson placed third at 24-under par with a total score of 840. NC State was fourth at ll-under (853), Wake Forest was fifth at four under (860), Florida State was sixth at one-under (863). Rounding out the field was Maryland at seventh (865), Duke at eighth (866), Virginia Tech at ninth (872), Virginia at 10th (878), and Boston College at 11th (921).
The conclusion of the second round and the final round were played Sunday, April 23 at the Old North State Club at Uwharrie Point, which features a par 72, 7,102-yard layout. This is the tenth year the ACC Men's Golf Championship has been played at the Old North State Club.
