ZIMBABWE’S leading amateur golfer Scott Vincent continued from where he left off at the Golden Pilsener Zimbabwe Open last month with a solid sixth place finish at the 61st edition of the prestigious ACC Men’s Golf Championship in the United States on Sunday.
The 54-hole event was played at the par-72, 7,102-yard Old North State Club in Badin Lake, North Carolina.
Vincent, who was part of the Virginia Tech University golf team carded a 2-under-par 70 on Sunday and finished in sixth place individually with a three-day total of 5-under-par 211.
Ollie Schniederjans of Georgia Tech University emerged victorious in the tournament with a 12-under-par 204, five strokes better than second
place Anders Albertson of Georgia Tech and Denny McCarthy of Virginia.
Vincent was, however, Virginia Tech’s best performer in the competition, helping them to fourth place overall on the 12-team leaderboard.
Virginia Tech entered the final round in six place after an opening round 10-over par 298 and a 4-under-par 284 in the second round.
Tech then went out on Sunday morning and shot a 13-under-par 275, the second-best round of the day and the tournament.
Vincent’s performance at the weekend comes less than a month after he finished as the highest placed amateur golfer at the 2014 Golden Pilsener Zimbabwe Open.
The only amateur to make the cut in the Sunshine Tour co-sanctioned event, Vincent posted rounds of 73-70-72-67 to finish in a tie for 24th place in the 156-man field.
Only a week prior to his participation at the Zimbabwe Open, Vincent had managed an impressive second place finish at the 3M Augusta Invitational in Augusta, Georgia, on April 6.
