The Cowboys, who entered the day with a one-shot lead over the Yellow Jackets, posted a 284 team score during the closing round at the par-72, 7,017-yard layout. Georgia Tech matched the Cowboys’ 4-under tally for the low score of the day to maintain its spot one shot back. OSU finished at 15-under 849 with Georgia Tech coming in at 850. Wake Forest finished third at 862.

The victory was the Cowboys’ first under Alan Bratton and came one day after the first-year head coach’s birthday.

For the second consecutive event, sophomore Wyndham Clark and senior Ian Davis tied for fourth place. The duo finished in a six-way tie for fourth at 4-under 212.
 
Davis closed with a 72, while Clark fired the squad’s low round of the event with a 68. Clark birdied two of his first four holes to go out in 2-under 34 and added birdies at the 11th , 15th and 16th before carding his only bogey of the day at the 17th.
 
Sophomore Jordan Niebrugge added a top 10 of his own, tying for 10th place after carding a 74 to finish at 213.
 
Senior Talor Gooch carded his low round of the event with a 1-under 71 to finish at 215 and tied for 18th place.
 
Freshman Zachary Olsen rounded out the starting five with a 73 to finish tied for 23rd place at 216.
