O’Rouke started the final round one stroke off the leader and posted four birdies, 11 pars, and three bogeys for his one-under-par 71 final round.

Teammate Kci Lindskog finished tied 16th with his even-par 216 (75 – 68 – 73). Lindskog was able to salvage his final round after a tough start to post up a one-over-par 73.
