Jaworski struggled in the middle of his round with bogeys on 7 and 8. He recovered strongly over the last ten holes, where he carded 4 birdies and 6 pars. This is what Jaworski told Golfstat.com following his round, “Off the tee I wasn’t as solid as I would have liked, but around the greens I got the putter going and got hot. I made a lot of birdies coming in and a 32 on the back nine really did it.”

Two other IJGT Alumni had successful showing in the tournament. Zach Wright of LSU finished in three way tie for second and Beau Hossler finished tied for fifth. Hossler started the in 11th place but was able to card his eighth round under par for the season which helped move him into a tie for 5th.
