— Albin Choi won his sixth career tournament at NC State on Wednesday at the Warrior Wave Intercollegiate presented by St. Regis Princeville Resort.

Tied with runner-up Filippo Zucchetti of Baylor with three holes to play, Choi birdied the par-3 16th and that was enough to earn a one-shot victory at 10-under 206, the identical score he won with at the Tar Heel Intercollegiate in September.

The Wolfpack finished second in the 16-team field at 11-under 853, seven shots behind Baylor. NC State shot a 6-under 282 during Wednesday’s final round that featured all five players in the lineup posting par or better scores.

Mitch Sutton notched his second top-10 of the season by finished tied for fifth at 5-under 211. He began the day in a tie for second and looked poise to finish in the same position, but he played the last two holes at +3 to erase three birdies earlier in his round.

James Chapman maintained his top-20 standing with an even-par 72 on Wednesday to finish tied for 13th at even-par 216 for the 54-hole event.

William Herring matched Choi with a 69 that also matches his best round at NC State set a few weeks ago at the Wolfpack Intercollegiate at Lonnie Poole Golf Course. Herring, and teammate Hunter Howell both wound up tied for 61st at 12-over 228. Howell shot even on Wednesday.

Choi was the only player in the field to shoot in the 60s all three rounds, posting rounds of 69-68-69. This is the third time at State that he has posted three-straight sub-70 rounds in a tournament. He also did it at River Landing as a freshman when he finished second, and the other occurrence was his 2012 NCAA Ann Arbor Regional victory.

Choi’s six career victories is the second most in school history, trailing only fellow Canadian Matt Hill who won 10 times during his NC State career.

In 30 career collegiate tournaments, Choi has finished in the top-10 exactly half the time, and has 24 top-20 finishes to his credit.

NC State completes its fall portion of the schedule with four top-5 finishes in five events. Action will pick back up February 17-19 at the Puerto Rico Classic. The Wolfpack is expected to add South Carolina transfer Logan Harrell for the spring to bolster an already strong lineup.
