When it comes to men's college golf, it all comes down to match play. So four of the nation's top teams came together to play the Capital City Match Play Championship at the Capital City Club in Atlanta.

Georgia Tech, the No. 3 team in the Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings, notched two wins over the weekend, including a 5-1 win over in-state rival No. 2 Georgia in the final match.

The Yellow Jackets defeated No. 24 Auburn in a morning match, 4-2, while the Bulldogs defeated No. 25 Florida State, 3.5-2.5.

The highlight of the day came when Georgia Tech junior Ollie Schniederjans, the No. 4 player in Golfweek's rankings, took on Georgia's Joey Garber, the No. 1 player. Schniederjans defeated Garber 2 up, something Georgia Tech head coach Bruce Heppler would like to see out of his No. 1 player.

Each team will play in its respective conference championship Friday through Sunday.
