BROOKINGS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -It came right down to the wire at Brookings Country Club in the Boys State “B” golf tournament.

Brody Boltjes of Platte Gettes had a great second round to put himself in a position to win playing in the second group.

He rallied to get into 2nd place with 6 holes to go. But Bennett Cassens of Faulkton also saved his best for Tuesday shooting a 75 and when he birdied 17 he pulled to within 1 of the new leader Boltjes. Needing just a par on the final hole to get the win, the Platte/Geddes golfer knocked his short putt right in the middle for a one stroke win. The Chester boys won the team title in a very close finish with the Black Panthers of Platte/Geddes.
