BYU golf: Fishburn finishes in top 20 after 34 holes of play, team in 13th

After 36 holes of play on Monday, sophomore Patrick Fishburn is tied for 16th place individually, while BYU men's golf sits in 13th place at the Southwestern Jones Invitational.

"We are very inconsistent," BYU assistant coach Todd Miller said. "We have stretches where we play solid golf, but then we make some big numbers, which kills our momentum. The guys know they have to improve their short game and eliminate the big mistakes."

Finishing the first day in the top 20, Fishburn shot 1-over par through the two rounds of play. Through the first round of 18, he shot 3-under par, birdying five holes. Fishburn shot 4-over par in round two, birdying the 16th hole. He also eagled the par-5 12th hole.

Freshman Spencer Dunaway is currently tied for 51st place individually. Dunaway birdied two holes in the first round of play and eagled the par-5 15th hole. In the second round, Dunaway shot 1-over par and birdied four holes. He sits at 9-over par through 36 holes of play.

Austen Christiansen and CJ Lee both finished the day at 10-over par. They are tied for 54th place after Monday's two rounds of play. Christiansen shot 4-over par in the first round of the day and finished shooting a 78. Lee shot a pair of 77's. Kaimakani Ruiz shot 13-over par in Monday's 36 holes and is tied for 69th place overall.

As a team, the Cougars shot 29-over par. BYU shot +14 and +15 in the first and second round, respectively. The Cougars sit in 13th place, and West Coast Conference foe San Diego sits four strokes behind in 14th place. No. 42 Pepperdine is in second place at 11-under par, while No. 6 USC leads the tournament at 24-under par.

BYU men's golf plays the final round of the Southwestern Jones Invitational on Tuesday. Groups begin teeing off at 7:30 a.m. PST. The event can be followed live from the BYU men's golf schedule page.
