ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The UCF men's golf team will return to action Sunday when play begins at the John Hayt Collegiate Invitational at the Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach. The Knights have established their lineup for the three-day, three-round tournament.

Based upon their tournament scoring averages and qualifying results, senior Simon Ward (County Monaghan, Ireland), junior Nuno Henriques (Funchal, Portugal) and sophomores Connor Arendell (Cape Coral, Fla.) and Brad Schneider (Valrico, Fla.) were exempt from qualifying.
