McDonald turned in his fifth consecutive round of 75 or lower for the Bulldogs to tie for 19th in the individual standings with a 36-hole total of 141.

As a team, the Bulldogs turned in their lowest round of the year and enter Saturday's final round tied for 11th among the 15 competing teams with a 574 (292-282) scorecard.
