Charlottesville, Va. - The Virginia men's golf team will play in the 60th annual Atlantic Coast Conference Championships April 26-28 at the Old North State Club at Uwharrie Point in New London, N.C. This marks the 12th consecutive year the tournament has been contested at the Old North State Club. The 54-hole event will start at 8:30 a.m. each morning.
Virginia is paired with North Carolina and NC State during Friday's opening round. Those teams are set to tee off at 9:10 a.m. Virginia's lineup includes Denny McCarthy, Mac McLaughlin, Ji Soo Park, David Pastore and Nick Tremps. McCarthy leads Virginia with a 72.69 stroke average while McLaughlin is second on the team at 74.12.
Both McCarthy and Park were in the UVa lineup for the ACC Championships last season when the Cavaliers placed second, seven strokes behind Georgia Tech. UVa's Ben Rusch won the individual title at 10-under 206. He is redshirting this season and will not compete in the tournament.
