There is no better feeling than waking up the next morning after you have won your first collegiate golf tournament. Bison junior Bill Carlson has had that feeling, taking care of business on a windy Tuesday afternoon at Oxbow Country Club. He brought home his first individual trophy, the Erv Kaiser Invitational trophy. Carlson walked into the clubhouse after his score of 69, two under-par to beat Josh Wytinck from University of Manitoba’s by two strokes.
Carlson carded 74 and 71 after the first day. He found himself down by four strokes and needed to get to work on the final day. It was almost a dual win for the Bison, but they lost the team title to Manitoba by six strokes, 894-900. Even though NDSU didn’t win the team title, they had the best team round on the final day, 291.
Bison sophomore Connor Holland placed 11th overall with a final round of 71 and posted a 227 for the tournament. Holland finished with the second best score on the Bison team. Bison junior Trent Olson had a final round score of 73 and finished tied for 15th overall. Ursinio Puga finished with a final round score of 78 for the Bison and finished tied for 18th. True freshman for the Bison Jacob Herdline led the second team and finished tied for 18th overall with a 54-hole score of 232.
The Bison are scheduled to golf next Monday and Tuesday at the Jackrabbit Invitational in Sioux Falls, S.D.
