BURNSVILLE, Minn. – Bemidji State University freshman Will Czeh has been named Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Golfer of the Week after posting a day two 72 (E) to climb out of 15th place, claim medalist honors and lead the BSU men's golf team to victory in the Upper Iowa Spring Invitational title Sunday.
Czeh prevailed over cool temperatures and windy playing conditions that cut Saturday’s round to nine holes and left the field with the final 27 holes Sunday at the par-72 Sunnyside Country Club in Waterloo, Iowa.
The Roseau, Minn. native totaled 12 birdies during the 36-hole event to finish at eight-over-par, 152 (80-72) and claim a five-stroke lead over the rest of the field for the first individual title of his collegiate career.
Czeh and the Beavers now turn their focus to the spring portion of the 2015-16 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Championship, April 8-9 at Paradise Golf Complex in Smithville, Mo. After 36 holes of the unique, split-season, 72-hole championship played at The Jewel Golf Club in Lake City, Minn. Oct. 5-6, BSU is 20 shots behind Minnesota State in fifth place (301-302—603/+35). Individually, Cody Cook is one stroke off the lead tied for fifth place (72-73—145).
