PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - The final round got underway Tuesday and the 48th-ranked Coastal Carolina men's golf team was making a move up the leaderboard at the John Hayt Collegiate Invitational but rain forced the golfers off the course and ultimately the round was cancelled, leaving the 36-hole scores as the official final results. This marks the first time in tournament history the event did not play all 54 holes (three rounds) at the par 72, 6,988-yard Sawgrass Country Club.

Coastal Carolina will turn its attention to the annual General Hackler Championship, which returns to TPC Myrtle Beach Mar. 11-12. In addition to host and 48th-ranked Coastal Carolina, the field features nationally-ranked Tennessee and Arkansas as well as Charleston Southern, East Tennessee State, Florida Gulf Coast, Gardner-Webb, Kent State, Lamar, Middle Tennessee State and UTEP.

This year's John Hayt Collegiate featured some of the nation's top programs as 11 of the 15 teams are ranked among the Golfstat top 50. The Chants moved inside the top five before the stoppage and, despite tying for ninth with a two-day total of 591, were only six shots out of third place.
