April 20, 2001





ORLANDO, FLA. – Georgia Tech shot an eight-under 280 team score
to take the lead after the first round of the 48th annual Atlantic Coast
Conference Men’s Golf championship at Disney’s Magnolia Course. The
Yellow Jackets led the way with three of the top six individual
finishers including All-American Bryce Molder who shot a three-under 69.
Senior John Engler of Clemson, who shot a six-under par 66, s the
individual leader after the first round.


Engler, a senior from Augusta, Ga., playing in his fourth ACC
Championship finished tied for second behind Molder, last year’s winner.
Engler had three birdies on each side without a bogie. He tied for
fourth as a sophomore and tied for fifth as a freshman. He is looking
for his fourth consecutive top five finish.


Dustin Bray, a North Carolina freshman from Asheboro, N.C.,
fired a five-under par 67 and is in second place while Wake Forest
freshman Bill Haas was next with a four-under par 68. Jay Haas, Bill’s
father, won the ACC individual title in 1973 as a Deacon performer.


Molder, who won by four strokes a year ago, carded a three-under
par 69. In addition to Molder, other Tech scores were a 69 by Chris
Mikkelsen, a 70 by Troy Matteson and an even-par 72 by Wes Latimer.


Wake Forest is one stroke behind Tech in the team race with a
281 while Clemson is third at four-under par 284 and NC State is fourth
with a one under-par 287. Virginia is fifth at 289, North Carolina,
290, Duke, 291, Florida State, 302 and Maryland, 312.
