Men's Golf Ties For Second at John Hayt Collegiate

More Information:    

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLA. - The Coastal Carolina men's golf squad could not overcome the shaky start and fell back, tying for runner-up honors at the John Hayt Collegiate, Feb. 18-20. The 54-hole event was played at Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

 

The Chanticleers trailed second-round leader Alabama by four shots heading into today's final 18, but stumbled in the opening holes and fell back, eventually finishing in a tie for second with Vanderbilt at 891, 10 shots behind the victorious Crimson Tide. UAB, UCF, Georgia State and UCLA all tied for fourth at 899.

 

Senior Dustin Johnson started the day with a double bogey and shot three-over 75 in the last round, finishing at even-par 216 in third place. Kevin Chappell of UCLA was the medalist at two-under 214, one shot better than Jon Curran of Vanderbilt. Junior Zack Byrd battled through a foot injury throughout the tournament but still managed to tie for 18th at 224, while junior Lindsay Renolds was just out of the top 20 in a tie for 22nd at 225.

 

The Chanticleers are next in action at the Ashworth Collegiate Invitational, Mon.-Tue., Mar. 5-6. The tournament is being played at the North Ranch Golf Club in Westlake Village, Calif.
