UWHARRIE POINT, N.C. - The University of Maryland men's golf team completed the first round with a six-over-par 294 and stands in ninth place after the first day of the 49th annual ACC Championship at Old North State Club at Uwharrie Point. After its top four scorers shot rounds in the 60s, No. 1-ranked Georgia Tech boasts a 17-under-par total of 271 and leads second-place Clemson by nine strokes and third-place North Carolina by 12.

Claiming two of the field's 18 individuals to shoot under par in the first round, Maryland is just six shots behind fourth-place North Carolina State's even-par 288 total. Senior Corey Brigham (Rumson, N.J.) paces the Terps with a three-under-par 69, which is good for a sixth-place tie individually. The round is Brigham's best in three ACC Championships since joining the Terps. He trails first-round leader Dustin Bray of North Carolina by three shots.

Freshman Bobby MacWhinnie (Pittsburgh, Pa.) also shot under par with a 71 that places him in a tie for 13th. In his first ACC Championship, MacWhinnie matched the second-best round of his career.

Among the Terps' other scores, junior John Moheyer (Lima, Ohio) shot a 76 and is tied for 40th. Sophomore Tim Kane (Simsbury, Conn.) is 43rd after shooting a 78 while senior Pete Toole (Lancaster, Pa.) is 45th after an 88.

Play resumes tomorrow with the second round of the ACC Championship. The Terps will compete with Virginia and Florida State in the early grouping, with tee times between 8:30-9:10 a.m.
