Defending champions, the Clemson Tigers, lead the 2024 ACC Women's Championship at Porters Neck Country Club in Wilmington, N.C., by two shots after an opening-round 10-under 278. 

Wake Forest is in solo second place at 8-under, and Virginia, Virginia Tech, and North Carolina are T3 at 5-under.

Florida State is in solo sixth place at 2-under, NC State is in solo seventh place at even par, and Miami is in solo eighth place at 5-over. Florida State is playing without sophomore Lottie Woad, who is making her LPGA debut at the Chevron Championship after winning the 2024 Augusta National Women's Amateur.

Woad shot 1-under in the first round and is currently T18.

In the individual competition, Isabella Rawl shot an impressive 5-under 67 with six birdies and one bogey. Rawl is currently ranked No. 249 in the Golfweek/ Women's Rankings.

She birdies holes No. 15, 17, and 18 to get into the clubhouse at 5-under and snag the first-round lead.

The standout was key for the Tigers last year in their upset of Virginia in the ACC championship finals last year. She won her match 1-up, securing the winning point.
