New London, N.C. – Freshmen Cameron Tringale and Taylor Hall each matched the competitive course record of 65, and Georgia Tech stormed back into the lead with a second-round score of 267 (21-under-par) after the second round of the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Golf Championship.
After 36 holes, Tech stood at 33-under-par 543, 10 shots ahead of Clemson (-23, 553) and 11 ahead of North Carolina (-22, 554). The third and final round at the Old North State Club began after a 30-minute break for each group.

Tech shaved 14 shots off par after the resumption of round two, which was suspended by thunderstorms at 5:10 p.m. Saturday, and recorded its lowest single round team score ever in the ACC championship. Clemson had taken the lead with a 17-under score to that point, but the Tigers went only 3-under during the completion of the round Sunday.
Tringale took the individual lead after posting a birdie at 17 and a chip-in eagle at the par-5 18th hole, completing 36 holes in 10-under-par 134, one shot ahead of teammate Hall (9-under-par 135) and Clemson’s Brian Duncan, who shot 67. Hall, who had hit his tee shot out of bounds at No. 10 when play was suspended Saturday, finished his double-bogey there and followed with an eagle and four consecutive birdies. He polished off his 65 with a birdie at 18.
Nathan Spoon of NC State was in fourth place at 8-under-par 136, followed by Clemson’s David May (67 – 137) and North Carolina’s Chase McFarland (66 – 137).
Kevin Larsen added a 67 for Tech and is tied for 12th place individually (4-under 140), while Roberto Castro birdied the final two holes to finish off a 70 for the Yellow Jackets and is tied for 19th place at 2-under 142. Barbosa, who had shot 65 Friday to take the first-round lead, shot 74 in round two and is tied for ninth place at 139.
