Krywulycz, the 2008 Southeastern Amateur champion, fired rounds of 72-68-67-67 to be at 10-under-par, three strokes behind eventual winner, Derek Chang.
"I played solid today, just too many bogeys to shoot the low score," said Krywulycz, a Junior at Augusta State majoring in History & Sociology where the Sydney sider has been based for the last three years.
"After a slow start with a round of 72, I just found myself in too deep of a hole to really be right in it. I needed to produce a special round, otherwise I was always going to struggle to get the win."
Despite not producing a win, Krywulycz's game remains on a high following a number of fine performances of late in the US.
Krywulycz is still pinching himself with the enormity of being part of the winning Augusta State team that earlier in the month collected their first NCAA Championship title over collegiate golf powerhouse, Oklahoma State, at The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tennessee.
Krywulycz was instrumental in the final, fighting from 4-down against Kevin Tway, to clinch the match on the 19th and in the process help secure the title for his team.
It was the perfect start for Krywulycz before the main amateur events this season get underway in the US.
"I've the Dogwood as my next event and I know there will be a lot of Aussies there competing." says Krywulycz.
"It will be great to catch up with the guys."
"This whole month has been a fantastic experience for me with being part of the winning NCAA Championship team and having played some great golf recently. I'm swinging well and despite not producing the round that I needed to do today, overall I'm pleased with how things are panning out for me."
