LITCHFIELD, Arizona - Western Washington University's Dylan Goodwin tied for 39th place in a field of 82 at the Patriot All-America Invitational which ended Monday at The Wigwam Golf Club Gold Course.
The three-day, 54-hole stroke play event, which featured 82 of the nation's top collegiate golfers, benefited the Folds of Honor Foundation.
Goodwin posted rounds of 74, 75 and 74 for a 223 total, 13 over par.
Sebastian Cappelen birdied the 18th hole for a one-shot victory. His three-round 4-under 206 (68-70-68) bested Kevin Penner (68-70-69) by one stroke.
The Folds of Honor Foundation salutes the sacrifice of fallen and disabled service members by ensuring their families are not left behind. Through scholarships and other assistance, they provide healing and hope to their families and seek to rally the nation in support of those who have served and sacrificed for our country.
Each player was issued a specially designed red, white and blue golf bag during the event. Inscribed on it was the name of a fallen soldier that player represented. Following the tournament, each player brings the bag home where it is auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Folds of Honor Foundation.
A senior from Multilteo (graduate of Kamiak High School), Goodwin has earned third-team GCAA PING All-America honors in each of his last two years at WWU. He has led the Vikings in stroke average both seasons, averaging 72.9 in 2011 and 72.5 in 2012.
Twice a GCAA West Region and league all-star, Goodwin was named Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year in 2011 after transferring from the University of Washington.
Born in South Africa to British parents, who also have Canadian citizenship, Goodwin moved to Indonesia before his second birthday and to London when he was six. He also spent a summer in Israel. During the summer of 2004, Goodwin made his latest move to the United States.
