Comments () A Text Size

FORT WORTH — After turning heads Saturday at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, Ryan alumnus Kelly Kraft struggled in the final day of the tournament.

On Sunday, Kraft finished the tournament tied for 57th, finishing at 6-over 286 in his third PGA tour event. Kraft came into the final round tied for seventh place, but he shot 10-over 80 in the final round.

The tournament was the third of Kraft’s seven maximum sponsor exemptions. Kraft, the reigning U.S. Amateur champion, failed to make the cut in his first two tournaments — the Valero Texas Open and the HP Byron Nelson Championship. 

Kraft almost broke a course record Saturday by shooting 29 on the front nine, one stroke off the record set by Wayne Levi. Kraft’s 6-under 64 in the third round was the low score of the day.

His Sunday score was the highest score posted in the final round. The former Raider had two double-bogeys and one triple-bogey.
