MURRELLS INLET, S.C. -- Coastal Carolina’s men’s golf team slipped on the final day, falling three spots to finish fourth at the 2008 General Jim Hackler Championship, Mar. 9-10. The two-day, 54-hole event was played at the TPC of Myrtle Beach (Par 72 – 6,950 yards) in Murrells Inlet, S.C. and featured 11 of the 15 teams in the field ranking in the top 50 in the nation, according to Golfstat.   The Chanticleers started the final round in the lead but struggled to find a rhythm during the day, shooting a 26-over 314 to finish at 39-over 903. Wake Forest posted a final round low 4-over 292 to take home the team title at 897, three shots ahead of runner-up Florida State and four ahead of Duke in third.   Sophomore Dan Obremski posted the top finish of his CCU career with a tie for sixth at 6-over 222. Sophomore Sam Lyons was next on the team at 11-over 227, good for 19th, while senior Lindsay Renolds and freshman Tripp McAllister tied for 20th at 228. Playing as an individual, junior Josh Jackson tied for 11th at 7-over 225 to finish top among the three Chants not competing on the team. Derek Fathauer of Louisville won the medalist honors, shooting a 1-over 217 to post a two-shot victory over Augusta State’s Henrik Norlander at 219.   CCU returns to the course Mon.-Tue., Mar. 17-18 at the Barona Cup, which will be played at the Barona Golf Club in San Diego, Calif.   Team Results 1              Wake Forest         301 304 292 897 2              Florida State          301 301 298 900 3              Duke       302 295 304 901 4              Coastal Carolina   289 300 314 903 5              Louisville               305 296 305 906 6              Lamar     296 309 304 909 T7           North Florida        309 308 298 915 T7           East Tennessee State          313 302 300 915 9              Augusta State      308 306 305 919 10            Pepperdine            301 313 307 921 11            Northwestern        308 300 314 922 12            North Carolina      306 310 307 923 13            UNC Wilmington 322 308 309 939 14            Tulsa      318 312 314 944 15            Georgia Southern 314 321 321 956   Top Five Individuals Plus Coastal 1              Derek Fathauer (Louisville)                74 71 72 217 2              Henrik Norlander (Augusta State)    74 72 73 219 3              Nicolas Geyger (Tulsa)       73 73 74 220 T4           Casey Clendenon (Lamar) 74 76 71 221 T4           Michael Schachner (Duke) 75 76 70 221   T6           Dan Obremski (Coastal)      70 71 81 222 19.           Sam Lyons (Coastal)           74 76 77 227 t20.          Lindsay Renolds (Coastal) 74 78 76 228 t20.          Tripp McAllister (Coastal) 71 76 81 228 t39.          Cameron Hooper (Coastal) 75 77 80 232 t14.          Josh Jackson (Coastal-Ind.)               73 76 76 225 t31.          David Dannelly (Coastal-Ind.)           76 78 76 230 t63.          Brandon Roach (Coastal.-Ind.)          79 78 85 242
