LAKE CITY – Bemidji State men’s golf freshman Rylin Petry put two excellent rounds together on Monday and Tuesday, and he was rewarded.

At the Watkins Invitational held in Lake City, Petry finished tied for first place with an even-par 144 (73-71), helping the Beavers to a second-place finish overall.

Petry sat in sixth place after Monday’s round, but his 1-under-par round on Tuesday brought him to the top of the leaderboard.

He advanced to a playoff against Minnesota State’s Max Brud and Missouri S&T’s Gustav Liljedahl, which Brud won in three holes with a chip-in for eagle on No. 9. Petry birdied the hole and earned second place.

BSU completed the 15-team tournament with a team score of 596 (295-301), eight strokes back of Missouri S&T (295-293=588). Winona State (299-298=597) took third.


Ben Corbid (73-73=146, tie for 7th); Jack Southard (72-79=151, tie for 22nd); Logan Schoepp (77-78=155, tie for 36th) and Caden Lick (80-81=161, tie for 53rd) rounded out the team showing for the Beavers.

Bemidji State brought another team to the tournament as well, which finished in 15th (329-330=659).

BSU will end its fall season at the Washburn Invite on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 3-4, in Topeka, Kan.
