BURNSVILLE – Ben Corbid has started his spring season in style.

The Bemidji State men's golf fifth-year was named the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Golfer of the Week on Wednesday after placing second at the Maverick Spring Invite.

Corbid was strong right out of the gate in the opening round, as he shot a 3-under 69 and was tied for third. He then found his stride down the stretch of the final round to come in with an even-par 72. He closed the tournament with birdies on holes 17 and 18 that helped him move into second.

Corbid compiled rounds of 69-72 for a 141 (-3) to come in second and was just three strokes back of first. He was the top finisher from the NSIC, as the Beavers were one of seven teams in the field in Arizona from the NSIC.
