Garrett Jones, a sophomore on the Wisconsin golf team, came so close to winning the Wisconsin State Golf Association State Amateur Championships in Saukville, Wis., Thursday.
Instead, he tied with Jeff Kaiser of Cedar Creek for second place, while Naga-Waukee Golf Course's Pat Boyle ran away with the prize. All three had cumulative scores of 293 at the end of four regulation rounds but a sudden-death playoff gave Boyle the eventual win.
Jones led by four strokes after three days and appeared to be poised for the win but he shot a 5-over-par 77 while Boyle finished with a 2-under-par 70 in the fourth round.
Brian Brodell, a senior on the men's golf team, finished in a tie for 12th place with a 301 over four rounds.
Jones just misses win in state championship
