Borregaard closes play at NCAA Chapel Hill Regional


End result

CHAPEL HILL, NC –

Claes Borregaard closed play Wednesday at the NCAA Chapel Hill Regional at Foley Golf Club.

The junior shot a 2-over 76 in the final round for a 7-over-par total of 217. He finished tied for 54th. He carded 12 pars and two birdies during his final round at the UNC Finley Golf Course.

“Claes represented Kennesaw State and his team extremely well this week,” said head coach Bryant Odom. “We are all exceptionally proud of his season. After a difficult start on Monday morning, Claes felt comfortable and produced an impressive run of ball-striking, hitting 27 consecutive greens in a row in the second and third rounds. Unfortunately, his wrist injury from the fall caught up with him on the back nine and he had a few bad holes. It’s to his credit that he was able to fight through it and finish strong.”

Borregaard led the team’s lowest scoring average this season. He led the team with 17 laps at par or better. The junior was KSU’s best player in six events this season and was ranked 200th in the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Ranking. His ranking is good for sixth in the ASUN this season. He opened the season at the Allstate Streamsong Invitational with rounds of 71-71-71 for a 6-under total of 213 on the par 73 course. He finished fourth at Palmas Del Mar Collegiate at 10-under par 206 with rounds of 70-66-70. He finished in fifth place at the ASUN Championship with rounds of 75-70-70 for a 1-under total of 215. His finish earned him a spot on the All-Tournament team. He collected ASUN Second Team All-Conference honors.

The Kennesaw State men’s golf team won three tournaments and earned nine top 10 finishes during the 2023-2024 season.

KSU finished the regular season with a sixth-place finish at the 2024 ASUN Championship. The Owls will begin play in Conference USA in the fall of 2024.
