After a 3-under 69, he entered the final round two shots behind leader Byungmin Cho.

Was even par on his first nine holes of his final round but birdied the 10th hole to crawl within four shots of McKenzie. Both players made pars on the next four holes, and then he made his move when he holed a 181-yard, 6-iron shot for eagle from the 15th-hole fairway while McKenzie was bogeying the hole.
