A solid final round wasn't enough to land Manotick's Brad Fritsch in the top 10 of the PGA Tour's John Deere Classic this weekend.

Fritsch shot a two-under 69 Sunday to finish in a seven-way tie for 13th a day after climbing the leader board with an eight-under 63 Saturday. American Brian Harman, who led the pack after Saturday's third round, won the tournament after shooting a five-under 66 to finish the tournament at -22, a stroke ahead of Zach Johnson, who finished second.

Following the round, Fritsch chose to focus on the positives.

"Not the round I envisioned but made four pars that I had no business making," he posted on Twitter Sunday night. "Trending nicely into the Canadian Open."

The momentum from Saturday's round didn't carry over into Sunday's finale for Fritsch, who boggied the first hole. He birdied the third hole before scoring five straight pars and another birdie to close out the front night at one-under. Fritsch would go on to birdie 12 and 16 but another boggy on 15 kept him from breaking away from the half-dozen other players tied at -14 for the tournament.

The first three rounds of the tournament saw Fritsch steadily improve after shooting a one-under 70 on Thursday, following the first round up with a three-under 68 before shooting one of the best overall rounds on Saturday.

Brantford's David Hearn was the next best Canadian after Fritsch, shooting a four-under 67 -- his best of the tournament - on Sunday to finish at -8 and in a tie for 45th.
