To say that the final two rounds of the ACC Men’s Golf Championships for Florida State went as well as the first would not be based in reality.

Entering Saturday in Clinton, South Carolina, the Seminoles were in second place at -10 as a team and one stroke off the lead. Over the final two rounds on Saturday, FSU shot +14 to finish +4 and in fourth place for the tournament. The worst round was the second as Florida State shot 300 or +12.

As was the case with the women the week prior, Duke took home the conference crown. The Blue Devils did so in convincing fashion, shooting -14 as a team — 12 strokes better than second place Clemson.

Just ahead of the Seminoles for third place was Wake Forest at +3. Behind FSU in order was N.C. State, Virginia, Georgia Tech and North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, Louisville and Boston College. The Yellow Jackets and Tar Heels were tied for seventh.

Virginia’s Jimmy Stanger was the individual winner, ousting North Carolina’s Ben Griffin and Wake Forest’s Paul McBride in a playoff hole. The top finisher for the Seminoles was Bennett Baker, who was tied for eighth overall at -2. The NCAA Regionals will begin on May 15.
