Golfers Finish Fourth at ACC Championship

April 20, 2003

ATLANTA – Freshman Thomas Jordan shot a 1-under-par 71 to pace Georgia Tech’s 1-over-par effort of 289 Sunday, and the Yellow Jackets held position and finished fourth at the ACC Men’s Golf Championship.

Senior Troy Matteson, the defending NCAA champion, shot 1-over 73 and finished in a tie for third in the medal race, three shots behind Richard Treis of North Carolina. Treis shot 2-under-par 70 and took the individual title at 5-under-par 211 by two shots over Bill Haas of Wake Forest (76-213).

The tournament was contested over the 7,102-yard, par 72 Old North State Club in Uwharrie Point, N.C.

Clemson, which began the day in third place, five shots behind Wake Forest, posted a 3-under-par team total of 285 and overtook both the Demon Deacons and North Carolina. The Tigers won by one shot over Wake Forest and by four over North Carolina. Matt Hendrix shot a 68 and Jack Ferguson a 70 to lead the Tigers’ charge.

Tech shot the day’s second-best team score, but remained in fourth place, 16 strokes off the lead.

Jordan’s 71 enabled him to tie for fifth at even-par 216 with Brent Wanner of Wake Forest (75). Sophomore Nicholas Thompson shot even-par 72 and finished in a tie for 23rd at 226, while senior Adam Cranford’s 75 gave him a tournament total of 227 and a tie for 26th, and sophomore Chan Wongluekiet carded a 73 and tied for 29th at 229.
