Shih shot a third-round score of 65, which equaled Michael Hebert from Auburn's second round score for lowest round at The McLaughlin and is one shot shy of the equaling the Columbia single-round record.
Michael Yiu played his best golf in the second round, carding a par-70, before registering a 78 in the final round to finish tied for 55th (75-70-78-229).
