“The team was very consistent this week,” BYU head coach Bruce Brockbank said. “I am pleased with their effort. Patrick and Rhett continue to lead the team with solid play. Spencer Dunaway made birdies in rounds two and three to catch up after slow starts. His scores helped the team big time. We have plenty of short game work ahead of us to help eliminate some of our mistakes. I will be excited as we learn to finish our rounds with pars and birdies.”
The Cougars finished the tournament held at Wailua Golf Course at 8-under-par, shooting 2-under as a team in Friday's final round.
Fishburn, who now has two top-10 finishes in two spring tournaments, shot 5-under for the event. The junior tied for 10th place, shooting 1-under-par in Friday’s round.
