  • "I was making putts today that I haven't made all season. I hit more fairways than any other tournament day," Harrouch said. "I didn't play close to what I know I'm capable of. I am motivated because I've figured out what I need to work on mentally to get better. I am going to do whatever it takes for me to be able to win this tournament next year."
  • Harrouch was 2-strokes off from being in the Top 5 and 20-strokes from the leader.
