Freshman Camden Smith earned his personal best result tied for 21st at two-over 218 while competing as an individual. Ben van Wyk placed in the top 30 individually for the fifth straight tournament. The graduate student shot even par during the final round for a t-29th finish at three-over 219, just one shot behind Smith.
