SIOUX CITY, IA – A former Wayne State College men’s golf-standout recently won a playoff hole during the Tri-State Masters this past weekend.
Rounds of the Tri-State Masters are usually played on courses in the three states of South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa. But due to COVID-19 all three days were held at Green Valley in Sioux City, Iowa.
It came down to a sudden death playoff between Iowa-native Adam Fields and Tennessee-native Ryan Terry.
Fields posted rounds of 69, 73 and 68 (210) while Terry shot 68, 69 and 74 (211) both tying at 209 during the end of the three rounds. The playoff hole was number 9 as Terry finished with a bogey and Fields shot a par to earn his second Tri-State Masters victory in the past three years (2018).
WSC social media accounts of @WSC Wildcats have been posting ‘This Date in Wildcat History’ posts. On April 22, 2011 Fields was named the NSIC Men’s Golfer of the Year after shooting one-over par 356 in 90 holes. Fields led the conference in the 2010-11 season with a stroke average of 72.9.
During his senior season, the Bishop Heelan High grad was selected as the NSIC Men’s Golfer of the Week twice. He was also coming off a 54-hole school record score of 206 after firing rounds of 68, 69 and 69 during the RMAC Men’s Spring Championships in Litchfield Park, Arizona.
Fields qualified to three straight NCAA Division II Central/West Regionals during his time at WSC.
