There’s a lot going on in the professional golf world this time of year. With all the news, there’s a lot of updates relevant to Georgia Tech as several of its former golfers are now on the tour. Richy Werenski, Paul Haley II, and Tyler Strafaci were some of the Yellow Jackets to be mentioned. Playing in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Werenski nearly won his second tournament while on the PGA Tour. He came very close to securing a win, finishing just one stroke behind the lead. The performance was enough to move him up 22 spots in the FedEx Cup race. Close only counts in horseshoes and handgrenades, and apparently golf too. In other news, Haley finished tied for 11th place in the Veritex Bank Championship. Strafaci announced that he will make his pro debut at the AT&T Byron Nelson.
This article is more of a photo gallery from last week’s ACC Golf Championship. Georgia Tech finished tied for 5th place. The event pretty much took place in the Yellow Jackets backyard. The tournament was held in Milton, Georgia at the Capital City Club, Crabapple Course. The Yellow Jackets were led by Junior Connor Howe who posted scores of 70-68-69.
As the school year draws to an end, a lot of attention turns to recognition of the year’s outstanding student athletes. That’s one of the primary purposes of the annual Yellow Jacket Celebration. Several student athletes from all sports were recognized in the ceremony. Among the prizes and awards, several scholarships are all rewarded. It was a challenging year for Tech as it was for any collegiate team due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Congratulations to all of those student-athletes who were recognized.
