HURON, S.D. (KELO) — The Class ‘AA’ Boys State Golf Tournament continued on Tuesday at Broadland Golf Course in Huron. Watertown sophomore Jake Olson entered the final round with a four-stroke lead for the individual state championship, while defending state champion Lincoln sat atop the team leaderboard with a seven-stroke lead over O’Gorman.

Olson would play steady throughout his final 18 holes, carding an even par 72 to win the individual state championship by three-strokes over Lincoln’s Luke Honner as Olson finished at -2 for the tournament.

The team championship would come down to a dramatic finish. Lincoln and O’Gorman were tied at +28 after 36 holes, so a playoff would be needed to determine the winner. On the second playoff hole, O’Gorman’s Radley Mauney clinched the state title with a birdie.
