Wake Forest Tournament History
• This will be the 62nd ACC Men's Golf Championship and the Demon Deacons have participated in each of the previous 61 championships.
• The Demon Deacons have won 18 team titles, the most of any school in the conference. Georgia Tech is the next closest with 13 titles.
• Wake Forest won 10-consecutive ACC titles from 1967-76, which is an ACC record.
• In 1973, the Deacons dusted the field, winning by 44 shots, which is the largest margin of victory in championship history.
• The Deacons last title came in 1989.
• Wake Forest has had 22 individual ACC Champions, which is nine-more than any other school.
• The last individual winner was Webb Simpson in 2008. He won that year with an ACC record score of 14-under par 202.
• Arnold Palmer won the inaugural ACC crown in 1954 with a score of 71 at The Old Town Club in Winston-Salem.
• Wake Forest legendary head coach Jesse Haddock won the ACC Championship 15 times, which is more than double the amount of titles for any other coach in the conference.

Wake Forest Notes
• Wake Forest is ranked No. 23 by Golfstat.com and No. 16 by Golfweek.
• Wake Forest has three players in the top 150 in both the Golfstat and Golfweek individual rankings. Will Zalatoris is the highest ranked freshman in the ACC at No. 16 by Golfstat and No. 14 by Golfweek. Danny Guise (120/129) and Davis Womble (123/119) are also in the top 150.
• The Demon Deacons are coming off their third win of the season with a 28 stroke victory at the Yale Spring Invitational. The win at Yale is the third of the season, following victories at Primland and the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate in the fall. Wake Forest hasn't won three tournaments in a season since 2005-06. That year the Deacs won the Mattaponi Springs Shootout, The Hootie at Bulls Bay and the NCAA East Regional.
• Junior Davis Womble won his first collegiate tournament of his career with a 6-under 204. He fired rounds of 70-66-68 to edge teammate Paul McBride by two strokes. Womble's 54 hole score of 204 is a new career low, besting his previous career low of 205 from Primland in the fall.
• The Demon Deacons owned the top four spots on the leader board at Yale, led by Womble and McBride. Danny Guise finished third and Will Zalatoris came in fourth.
• Freshman Will Zalatoris leads the ACC with a 69.7 stroke average this season, just ahead of Georgia Tech's Ollie Schneiderjans (70.0). Zalatoris is less than a stroke off of Bill Haas' Wake Forest lowest single-season average. Haas had a stroke average of 68.93 in 2003-04.
• As a team Wake Forest is second in the league with a scoring average of 282.7. The Deacs are on pace to shatter the program record of 288.43 set in 2001-02.
