I have a Maggard 24mm synthetic shaving brush. I wet it about 2, 3 seconds under the faucet, then I squeeze the hairs to eliminate the excess water. I also give the brush a couple of shakes to also eliminate the excess water. After this I face lather a shaving cream, but I don't have enough lather for 3 passes. What am I doing wrong?

While I am not familiar with the brush or cream, the obvious solution is to use more product. 
Also, creams tend to be more sensitive to excess water, so maybe you can add very little water between passes.

If my lather isn’t up to par on my 3rd pass, I add more soap/cream to the brush.

Aaaannnddd,,, there you go!
No need to be obsessed with getting three passes out of a load of lather when the resource for it is right at hand.

You might also be using too much lather for passes 1 & 2. The thickness of lather only needs to be thin. Any more than that just isn't required to get the job done.

It may be that you need to add a quick splash of water (not much) to the tips of the brush. The lather may be too dry. Just an observation.

I notice that I most times have too much lather on the first application when I face lather.  It’s very luxurious!

You're welcome to borrow some of my lather.

Either you're not using enough product or you're not using enough water.
