Lihue, Hawai’i — Freshman Austen Christiansen and sophomore Patrick Fishburn tied for 36th place individually as BYU men’s golf finished 13th at the John Burns Intercollegiate, Friday.

“We had a decent round yesterday, but today we shot seven-over-par on a day where the wind slowed down considerably," BYU head coach Bruce Brockbank said. "Fishburn and Christiansen played the best for us, and it was good to see Austen (Christiansen) shoot a couple of good scores. Overall as a team, we still have a lot of work to do.”
