The ACC continues to hold sway over the SEC in golf, which makes sense, culturally: Despite a close threat from Steve Spurrier and Sterling Sharpe, Al Golden and Gino Torretta won the 2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge golf tournament by a one-stroke margin. This snaps a two-year winning streak by Paul Johnson and Jon Barry, and extends the ACC’s winning streak in the tourney to four years. The SEC’s last victories came courtesy of Spurrier and Sharpe in 2008 and 2009. If you like golf words, here are some golf words about the golf that happened. We’ll just be over here marveling at the fury of Golden’s hair.
