Jaguars Finish Sixth At Hackler

GEORGETOWN, S.C. -- Augusta State combined for a 302 Monday during the third and final round of the General Hackler Championship at DeBordieu Club.

The defending tournament champion, ASU entered the final round tied for third but settled for a sixth-place finish in the 15-team field. The Jaguars finished at 889 (+37), three shots back of fifth-place Virginia.

North Florida, ranked No. 14 in the nation, posted a 6-over 290 to capture a two-stroke victory over No. 41 East Carolina. Ninth-ranked Arkansas was third, followed by No. 19 New Mexico and No. 24 Virginia.

Ranked 49th in the latest Golfstat rankings, ASU was paced by senior Taylor Floyd's tie for seventh. With a 1-under 70 in the final round and a 54-hole total of 5-over 218, Floyd (73-75-70) registered his fourth top-25, third top-15 and second top-10 of the season.

In its 10th year of existence, the tourney was contested for the first time at DeBordieu, a Pete and P.B. Dye-designed course that played to a par of 71 and measured 7,189 yards from the championship tees.

Junior Derek Chang, despite a final-round 77, joined Floyd in the top 10 with a tie for ninth at 6-over 219. The top-10 finish was Chang's first as a Jaguar and second top-20 effort of the season. Senior Brendan Gillins tied for 21st at 13-over 223 (71-74-78) while freshman Robin Petersson tied for 45th at 299 (79-73-77) and sophomore Alex Wennstam tied for 68th at 237 (82-76-79).
