Over the weekend, the NC State men’s golf team competed in the ACC Championship in Panama City Beach, Fla. at Shark Tooth’s Golf Club, closing the regular season with an eighth-place finish.

Despite the Pack’s lackluster placement, the weekend was still marked by several standout performances, including grad student Easton Paxton becoming NC State’s all-time leader and junior Spencer Oxendine earning his best score over at par (-6) of the season.

On the first day of competition, held on Friday April 22, Paxton and Oxendine paced the field with rated 4-under performances across two rounds, with the duo tied for 13th in the individual standings of the event. While the Wolfpack finished tied for eighth on Friday, Paxton and Oxendine had the Pack just four strokes off fourth place.

Paxton became the all-time leader for NC State on Friday, lapping his 151st lap and breaking a record held since Bowen Sargent lapped 150 laps from 1987-1991.

Sophomore Ethan Choi was not far behind Paxton and Oxendine on the first day of play, finishing the day tied for 24th after going 3 under in the first round.

UNC-Chapel Hill dominated the event by outscoring second-placed Georgia Tech by nine strokes throughout the two-day event.

Oxendine again led the Wolfpack on day two of the event, scoring 6-under over 54 holes to tie for 10th place in the event. Oxendine’s top 10 was his fourth of the season.

Paxton finished the event 3 under par, good for a tie for 19th place. Choi finished the weekend tied for 32nd while junior Maximilian Steinlechner finished tied for 50th. Junior Carter Graf had a rough Friday but bounced back Saturday, going 1 under in round three and finishing in 57th place.

Next up for the Wolfpack is NCAA Regionals, which takes place May 16-18. On Wednesday, May 4 at 4 p.m., Golf Channel will announce which regional teams NC State and others are in during the NCAA Selection Show. Next is the NCAA Championship, which runs from May 27 to June 1 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
