The Bison men’s golf team felt right at home Monday and Tuesday. NDSU had an impressive four top-10 finishers at the Erv Kaiser Invitational at Fargo’s Oxbow Country Club to take a second place finish.
“The mindset this year is excellent,” said head coach Billy Iverson. “The guys are trying to compete with each and they know if they can beat each other they will be somewhere near the top.”
The six-team tournament was won by Manitoba with an 885 and the Bison were two shots back with an 887.
NDSU was led by Nathan Anderson who finished 5-over 221 for fourth place. Bill Carlson and Trent Olson tied for fifth at 222, Connor Holland tied for eighth with a 224, and Nate Varty tied for 21st with a 233.
“When you have a 5-person team, it can be tough to get all five people that are really, really good,” said Anderson. “We have five people right now that can all play really well.”
Anderson and Carlson were part of a four-way tied for second place at 3-over-147 after the first two rounds Monday. Manitoba’s Charlie Boyechko even-par 72 in the final round Tuesday propelled him to win the 37-player tournament. His 3-over 219 was one shot over teammate’s Josh Wytinck and North Dakota’s Nick Schaefer.
NDSU’s second team saw a sixth place finish with a 938. Oliver Boeckel tied for 19th with a 232, Kavin Dvorak finished 24th with a 235, Hayden Timm tied for 25th with a 236, Kyle Jandro tied for 30th with a 240 and Josh Weismantel tied for 32nd with a 242.
NDSU won’t compete again until Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 when they travel to Sioux Falls, S.D., for the South Dakota State Invitational.
