MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – UVA senior Jimmie Massie shared the first-round lead at the General Hackler Championship taking place at The Dunes Golf and Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on Sunday. Due to a morning frost, the opening round was delayed until a 10 a.m. start and the event’s second round was not completed Sunday due to darkness.

Massie shot 5-under 67 during the opening round to share the tournament lead after 18 holes with South Carolina’s Ryan Hall. Massie’s performance matched his best single-round score against par during his UVA career.

Virginia was in fifth place after the opening round at 1-over 289 but dropped back to ninth place when play was suspended. UVA did not finish the front nine of its second round due to darkness.

Midway through his second round, Massie had fallen back to 33rd place at 2-over par for the tournament.

UVA’s other first-round scores included a 70 by Pietro Bovari, a 75 by Sam Jung, a 77 by George Duangmanee and an 80 by Chris Fosdick. Bovari was in eighth place, Jung in 47th, Duangmanee in 66th and Fosdick was 79th after the first 18 holes.
