He would find trouble on No. 2 with a double-bogey and follow up with bogey on No. 4 before knocking home a birdie at No. 8 to finish out strong.
Sport Allmond finished off the Carpet Capital by firing a final round (+6, 78). Allmond would have an up-and-down start with a bogey at No. 11 and a double-bogey on No. 13. He would mix in birdies at Nos. 15 & 17 to make the turn at 2-over-par. The front 9 would not be kind to Allmond as he recorded two bogeys and a double-bogey.
Ben Rebne got off to another good start with a birdie on No. 11. Nos. 14-16 would not be kind to Rebne as he posted scores of double-bogey, bogey, and double-bogey to quickly stand at 4-over-par for the round. He would gain some momentum turning to the front 9 with a birdie at No. 18, but three bogeys and a triple-bogey would thwart his round.
Jack Clark would post a final round 82 in his first tournament as a Roadrunner. He would struggle to get it going on Sunday with a round that featured no birdies, six bogeys, and two double-bogeys.
Eli Hendricks shot a third consecutive 83 to close out his tournament. He would struggle to get anything going on the back 9, making the turn at 9-over-par. He would wrangle it back in on the front 9 and close with a birdie at No. 7 to finish out with some momentum heading into the next tournament.
