THE FLATS – Golfer Shun Yat Hak, a member of the Georgia Tech starting unit that reached the semi-finals of the NCAA Men’s Division I Golf Championship last spring, has elected not to return to school, head coach Bruce Heppler announced Tuesday.

Hak will become a professional and has entered the field for this week’s Honda Powersports Classic in Florence, S.C.

“We’re disappointed that Jason (Hak’s nickname) will not be returning,” said Heppler. “But we respect his and his family’s wishes for Jason’s future and wish him all the best.”

The former No. 1-ranked junior golfer, who came to Tech from Lake Mary, Fla., played in the middle of the Tech order last season, posting two top-20 finishes and compiling a 73.0 stroke average, fourth-best on the team, in nine events. His best finish was a tie for eighth at the Gary Koch Invitational in the spring, and he tied for 32nd at the NCAA Championship.
