Kevin Jorden, a sophomore at Southern Mississippi, finished second at 4-under 209 after a final-round 67. LSU junior Myles Lewis, who won the 2012 Magnolia title, and Southern Miss senior Kevin Brady tied for third at 2-under 211.

West, a sophomore at Mississippi, made a pair of front-nine double bogeys and fell out of contention en route to an 8-over 79.
