The 2013 Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Golf Championship returns to the Old North State Country Club in New London, N.C., for the 12th straight year and 28th time overall. The 54-hole tournament will be held April 26-28, on the par 72, 7,102-yard course. Each round begins at 8:30 a.m., on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Pack's Albin Choi leads six ACC individuals currently ranked in the top 50 of the latest Golfweek rankings. He is ninth according to Golfweek, but sits fourth in the Golfstat Cup, and is one of 10 semifinalists for The Ben Hogan Award.
Choi has captured an NCAA D-I leading five victories this season, and his nine career wins are one short of Matt Hill's school record. Additionally, his 70.2 scoring average this season is the second lowest in program history. Matt Hill's 70.10 average in 2008-09 is the program standard.
No other player in the ACC has more than two victories this season.
Junior Logan Harrell joins Choi as one of only 10 golfers in the league to garner a victory during the 2012-13 campaign. His final-round 66 allowed him to win The Hootie @ Bulls Bay back in March.
Senior Mitch Sutton will take part in his fourth and final ACC Championship. The London, Ontario native has finished T21, T13 and T21 in his career at Old North State. He will become the first Wolfpacker to play in four-straight league tournaments since Jerry Richardson (2004-07).
Sophomore Bill Herring has played his best golf in recent weeks. His run of success started with a fourth-place finish at the Keith Hills Invitational, playing as an individual. He parlayed that into a top 10 at the Irish Creek Collegiate, and then tied for 12th last weekend at the Wolfpack Spring Open.
Freshman Carter Page will make his 10th start of the season this weekend. His best finish to date was a tie for 10th at the USF Invitational that led the Wolfpack to a victory at Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club.
The championship is open to the public and free of charge.
