MURRELLS INLET, S.C. - UCF shot a final round 22-over-par 310 Monday and finished in 10th place at the General Jim Hackler Invitational at the TPC of Myrtle Beach. Tough scoring conditions were the order of the day Monday as the lowest team score was an 8-over-par 296 by ninth-place Pepperdine. Runner-up Notre Dame was the only other team to break 300 when the Fighting Irish carded a 10-over-par 298.

The top of the leaderboard was a carbon copy of last week's Seminole Intercollegiate as host Coastal Carolina won the team title and East Tennessee State's Rhys Davies won medalist honors.

The Chanticleers finished five shots ahead of Notre Dame. Purdue finished third, while Kansas State and Louisville rounded out the top five. Davies finished at 2-under-par 214 and edged Coastal Carolina's Dustin Johnson and Notre Dame's Shane Sigsbee by a single stroke.

UCF was paced by Chris Anderson who tied for 24th. Ben Leong shot the low round of the day for the Golden Knights with a 1-over-par 73 en route to a tie for 30th. Preston Brown finished alone in 33rd, followed by Andreas Hoegberg in a tie for 34th and Giwon Suh in a tie for 50th.

UCF will have a couple weeks off before returning to action at the Augusta State/Cleveland Golf Invitational April 2-3 in Augusta, Ga.
