The next time you’re playing a round of golf and maybe need a bit of humbling you could always look to Tiger Woods. If that doesn’t do the trick, after all he’s a pro, then we have a better suggestion. Check out the Georgia Tech men’s golf team. Their 37 under par (yes, you read that right) performance to win the ACC Men’s Golf Championship should slow your roll. By the way, if you’re keeping tabs, it’s the Yellow Jackets’ 18th conference title. It’s their 10th conference title in the last 14 years.
After Georgia Tech the top 5 includes Virginia, Wake Forest with Duke and Florida State tied for fourth. The Cavaliers shot 22 under, the Demon Deacons 19 under and both the Blue Devils and Seminoles were at 12 under.
It was a battle (you’d expect no less) for the ACC men’s individual title. Florida State’s John Pak became just the second golfer (after Jonas Blixt) in Seminole history to take the top spot. Pak delivered a solid 13 under, 203 to take the honors.
Pak held off Andy Ogletree, Bryson Nimmer and David Morgan for the championship. Georgia Tech’s Ogletree came in at 12 under, Clemson’s Nimmer at 11 under and Virginia’s Morgan at 10 under.

Ogletree and teammate Luke Schniederjans had top 10 finishes to lead the Yellow Jackets. Ogletree, as previously mentioned finished at 12 under and Schniederjans was 8 under. Connor Howe tied for 14th at 5 under, Tyler Strafaci tied for 16th at 4 under and Noah Norton tied for 27th at 1 under.
