Kuest won the William H. Tucker Invitational Sept. 26-27 by nine strokes after firing a combined 200 (-16), the lowest score ever in the tournament's 65-year history. He shot a tournament-low 63 (-9) in the first round and carded a total of 18 birdies and two eagles at the event. 

Kuest then went on to tie for first place at the Nick Watney Invitational Sept. 30-Oct. 1 in his hometown of Fresno, California. The senior carded another total score of 200 (-13), leading the team to a first-place finish as well. The individual title was Kuest's ninth of his BYU career.
