Georgia Tech Men Still on Top in the Ninth Edition of the Mastercard Collegiate Golf Rankings

PRINCETON, N.J. – Georgia Tech is the top-ranked team in the ninth edition of the MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings, the fifth consecutive week the Yellow Jackets have held the top spot.

Georgia Tech has won three Rolex Collegiate Tour events so far this season and is preparing to compete in the U.S. Collegiate Championship Apr. 7-9 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The Yellow Jackets, which won the Puerto Rico Golf Classic at Rio Mar and the Taylor Made/Waikoloa Intercollegiate last month, also won the Carpet Capital Collegiate Classic during the fall. Clemson, which held the top spot in the MasterCard Rankings the entire fall, is ranked second. Northwestern, which won the Ping/Golfweek Preview during the fall, is ranked No. 3. Georgia, which won the Schenkel E-Z-GO Invitational this past weekend, moved up to No. 4. Rounding out the top five is No. 5 Brigham Young, which leads the Rolex Collegiate Tour with five team victories so far this season.

Matt Kuchar of Georgia Tech, who was the Rolex College Golfer of the Month for February, is the top-ranked men’s individual for the third straight week. Kuchar, who tied for the individual medalist honors at the Taylor Made/Waikoloa Intercollegiate, has five top ten finishes in six starts this year. Luke Donald of Northwestern is ranked second. Rounding out the top five individuals are Lucas Glover of Clemson, ranked No. 3, Bryce Molder of Georgia Tech, ranked No. 4, and Charles Howell of Oklahoma State, ranked No. 5.
