While the final round was rained out, a playoff was held to determine the champion. Jason Hartwick defeated Chris Nallen for the tournament title. Hartwick is a member of the University of Texas team, while Nallen plays for Arizona.
Jones fired a one-over-par 70 on Saturday after rounds of 70 and 67 to open the tournament. The native of Florence, who has been a member of three Clemson golf teams that have finished first, second or third in his three years with the program, had five bogeys and four birdies during difficult conditions on Saturday on the unusual par 69 course.
Jones was hoping to become the third different Clemson golfer to win a major amateur event in the last three weeks, but the weather ended that goal. Matt Hendrix won the Sunnehanna Amateur two weeks ago, and Brent Delahoussaye won the Monroe Invitational last weekend. Both Hendrix and Delahoussaye also participated at the Northeast Amateur. Hendrix had a 72 on Saturday and finished in 14th place at 211, four over par. Delahoussaye was 66th in the field of 80 golfers with a 54-hole score of 221.
