UHV Claud Jacobs Golf Tourney Rained Out

Mother Nature again won out Monday in forcing the cancellation of the final round of the UHV Claud Jacobs Collegiate Invitational.

Heavy overnight rains left both the Victoria Country Club and The Club at Colony Creek unplayable on Monday resulting in the calling of the tournament and reverting back to Sunday’s scores to determine the winners.
