July 25, 2014Tweet
SYRACUSE, NY—Recent Binghamton graduate and golf standout Bryce Edmister recently finished in second place at the 92nd annual New York State Amateur Championship on Thursday. The two-time PING All-Region player came from eight strokes behind in the final round, carding a 67 (-4) to force a playoff in which he was defeated by Luke Feehan on the first extra hole.
Edmister, a native of Webster, NY, played a brilliant final 18 holes at the par 71 Bellevue Country Club in Syracuse. On the short par five fifth hole, Edmister capitalized with an eagle and followed that up with a birdie on the par 4 sixth. Through nine holes, Edmister was two-under on his round and started to shave away at the lead after a birdie on the par 5 10th hole brought him closer.
The three-time Binghamton golf MVP wound up making birdie on his final two holes to close out his round at 67 and forced a playoff with Mahopac, NY native and 23-year old Luke Feehan who played his collegiate golf at Boston College. Edmister’s comeback fell just short on the first hole of extra play as Feehan wound up making par to corral the 92nd annual NYS Amateur Championship, leaving Edmister in second place alone among 156 players who began play on Tuesday.
Edmister tallied a total of 14 birdies over the four-round event and shot a 72-hole total of 289 (+5). He was -3 on both par fives and par fours on Thursday.
Current Binghamton golfer Cal Addy, who will be a junior next year, also competed in the NYS Amateur Championship. He fell just short of making the round 3 & 4 cut after carding a 78 and 77, respectively in the first two rounds.
