The Buccaneers won the Birkdale Classic by five strokes over 25th ranked-Wake Forest after shooting a two round total of 573 (290-283). Senior Pat Beste earned individual medalist honors by firing a 3-under par 141 (73-68) in his two rounds of play. Each of the Buccaneer golfers finished in the top-14 in the 15 team event.
