In collegiate golf a school will have five players eligible to count towards the team score, with only the four best scores being used. This weekend's five-man team consisted of junior Davis Womble (-1), freshman Will Zalatoris (-10), sophomore Danny Guise (-5), freshman Paul McBride (-2) and freshman Tanner Owen (+4).
Wake Forest has one of the most storied golf programs in the country, and Coach Jerry Haas this this team headed back in the correct direction. This is now Wake's second win in as many tournaments, and next week they will travel to Alpharetta, Georgia to compete in the U.S. Collegiate Championship.
