WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. — Patrick Fishburn finished tied for 13th individually, while BYU men's golf took 12th place in the Southwestern Jones Invitational, Tuesday.

"The guys were determined to shoot under par today as a team, "BYU Director of Golf Todd Miller said. "They were very close to getting it done. It was one of our best team scores of the year on a tough course. Patrick (Fishburn) didn't have his best tournament, but he found a way to shoot some good scores. I was proud of the way Spencer (Dunaway) bounced back after shooting 80 the first round."

Fishburn finished the tournament at even par. He shot three-under-par in the first round, four-over-par in the second and shot one-under-par in Round 3. Fishburn birdied three holes in today’s round and also eagled the 15th hole. His 13th-place finish makes for his fourth top-20 finish of the 2015-16 season.

Spencer Dunaway concluded the event tied for 40th place at nine-over-par. Dunaway shot even par in today’s round of 18 and birdied three holes on the day.
