COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Coming off top-six finishes in each of its last three tournaments, including a victory at the Liberty Classic, the Terrapin men's golf team takes on old foes at the ACC Championship beginning Friday at Old North State Club at Uwharrie Point in Badin Lake, N.C. The Terps face a conference field that includes Georgia Tech, the country's No. 1-ranked team by both Golfweek and Golfstat, as well as six other teams ranked in Golfstat's top 50. In 2001-02, the Terps are 1-4-1 head-to-head against the ACC, including a 1-0-1 record against Florida State.

Terps Capture Sixth Place At Wofford Invitational

  • The Terps shot their best score of the season in the final round, but had to settle for sixth place at the Wofford Invitational April 12-13. The three-under-par 285 in the third round was Maryland's first sub-par round of the spring and best score since a 283 in the first round of the ODU/Seascape Invitational on Oct. 29, 2001.
  • After only 16 sub-par scores in the first two rounds, 22 individuals, including four Terps, shot under par in the third and final round. Senior Corey Brigham, the 2001 champion at Wofford, shot a final-round 70 to grab a share of 15th place, while the other Terrapin individuals finished between 30th and 39th place.

    It's A Terrapin Sweep At The Liberty Classic

  • The Terps earned their first spring title with a nine-shot win at the April 8-9 Liberty Spring Classic. Individual champion Corey Brigham's second-round 66 punctuated the Terps' comeback from a six-shot, first-round deficit amassed under blustery conditions. The title was the Terps' first since the 2001 Temple Invitational.
  • After a first-round 76, Brigham's final-round, six-under-par 66 matched the best round of his career. The title was the second of his career, with the first coming nearly one year before at Wofford. He led the field with 10 birdies en route to shooting a two-under-par total of 142 for the second consecutive tourney.
  • Competing individually, senior Phillip Fenstermaker claimed second place with a 147 total. Fenstermaker matched his career-best score with a final-round 71, the field's fourth lowest score in the final 18 holes. Freshman Bobby MacWhinnie, who tied for the first-round lead at 73, recorded a final-round 76 and tied for fifth.

    Terps At A Glance

  • With Corey Brigham's victory and Phillip Fenstermaker's second-place showing at Liberty following Brigham's second-place finish and Bobby MacWhinnie's tie for third at the Colonial, the Terps boasted individuals in the top three in back-to-back tournaments.
  • According to Golfweek individual standings, Brigham is the top golfer in District II with a 72.35 rating. He currently stands 18th among ACC individuals.
  • The Terps hold winning head-to-head records against every regional opponent except Penn State (0-2), which holds a five-stroke advantage over Maryland. The Terps are 66-5 against District II competitors in 2001-02.
