Brady’s second-round score of 69 was his seventh-round below 70 this season. The Zachary native had made 96 birdies – good for 33rd in the country before Tuesday. 

Ryan Fulton finished just inside the top-25 individually after rounds of 73, 73, and 75.

“Rough day today. We just didn’t have any gas left in the tank. We started poorly and never really strung together many good holes until the end of the round.”

“We’ve had some really good rounds and tournaments this year – unfortunately this may have been our poorest performance. No excuses – we just didn’t have it this week.”

“The good news is that we have three weeks to prepare for the Southland Championships. We know exactly what we need to work on over the next three weeks, and I promise these guys will work their tails off.”
