Junior Ben Wheeler recorded his seventh career top 10 finish by tying for seventh. After rounds of 71-73 Saturday, Wheeler carded a final-round 73 for a 54-hole total of 1-over 217. His 1-under scoring on the par 4’s was fourth-best in the field He started slow, with bogeys on two of his first five holes, but was 3-under over his next eight holes to get to 1-under par through 13 holes. He posted back-to-back bogeys before reeling off three pars to end his round.

Andrew Dorn tallied his seventh career top 20 finish by tying for 13th. After a pair of 71’s Saturday, the junior posted a 77 Sunday to finish with a 3-over 219 over 54 holes. His 5-under scoring on the par 5’s was second-best in the field and his 11 birdies was the sixth-best total.
