Fryer hit six birdies in an outstanding final round.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A fantastic final round from Joe Fryer carried Long Beach State into a tie for first place at the Sacramento State Invitational, as Fryer closed the tournament at 6-under par after a third round 67.
Fryer was locked in for his third round of play. After starting the day one-under par, Fryer sank a total of six birdies in route to a five-under 67. He would finish six-under 210 for the tournament, good for first place and earning individual medalist for the competition.
The win is the second of his career, as Fryer also won the Folino Invitational last season as a sophomore.
Following the first two rounds, Long Beach State Men’s Golf sat atop the leaderboard at three-over par. The Beach carried that momentum into day two as they concluded the tournament with a 291 to end at six-over par.
The Beach would place tied for first alongside defending team champion Grand Canyon, with the Antelopes round three score of 284 serving as the tiebreaker and giving the team title to GCU. The Beach saw two of its athletes finish within the Top 10.
Nick Cantlay, who started the day as co-leader, ended the tournament tied for eighth place at two-over par 218. Hunter Reed and Niels Andersen finished the competition tied for 18th place at five-over par. Patrick Pockels closed the tournament at 18-over par 234.
