 Brodie, pictured right, older brother of Scottish girl international Kirsty Brodie, shot rounds of 73, 76 and 69 for a two-over-par total of 218 and joint 10th placing alongside Brad Bawden who had ever-improving rounds of 77, 73 and 68 for 218 over a 6,955yd course. Brodie and Bawden finished eight strokes behind the winner, Jakob Van de Flierdt (Rollins College) who had steady scores of 68, 71 and 71 for six-under 210 and a one-stroke victory.
