SALISBURY, N.C. – Due to continuing inclement weather at the Country Club of Salisbury, Monday play at the 2017 SAC Men's Golf Championship has been canceled with the tournament shortened to 27 holes.

The 11 golfers that have not completed their first rounds, including four Newberry players, will do so at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. Tee times on the first hole will begin at 10:00. Golfers will only play the front nine, with several holes on the back nine prior to No. 16 flooded after over four inches of rain in the last 24 hours.

Carlos Leandro and Spencer Skiff will tee off on No. 16 with three holes left to play in their round. Leandro is a stroke under par and Skiff is one over. Harry Bolton will line up a 12-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to begin his day after shooting four-over through the first 17 holes. Evan DeGrazia, also at four-over, will putt for birdie from nine feet out on the 17th green when play resumes.

Newberry is currently tied with Queens for second at four-over for the tournament, four shots back of Carson-Newman. The Eagles and fifth-place Lincoln Memorial, 11 shots off the pace, were the only other schools not to complete first-round play Sunday.
