BYU golf improved overall this week at the Nick Watney Invitational finishing high in the leader board.

Fishburn finished the tournament in third place with a score of 11-under par. His ability to finish many of the holes under par gave him an advantage. He had 15 birdies through three rounds along with two eagles. He was one of three players to have two or more eagles in the tournament. Head coach Bruce Brockbank was very impressed with Fishburn’s performance throughout the tournament.

“He is playing great golf. He really showed what he is capable of today,” Brockbank said in a press release on

The team completed the tournament in ninth place overall. Their rank in the tournament may be deceiving because of how low it is but their score shows great improvement from Husky Invitational. The Cougars ended the Nick Watney Invitational one-under par. They finished the Husky Invitational 47-over par.

BYU birdied 55 holes on the tournament as a team. CJ Lee improved by finishing four-over par compared to nine-over par in the Cougars last tournament. Sophomore Dalton Stranger who was playing as an individual finished with the second highest score of all the Cougars. He ended the tournament tied 38th and just two-over par.

BYU will continue its fall tournament play at the Alister Mackenzie Invitational in Fairfax, California on Oct. 12-13.
