KINGSTON, Ontario -- Former Saint Mary's golfer Ben Geyer fired a 19-under par to finish in a tie for runner-up honors at The Great Waterway Classic, a Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada  – event at Loyalist Golf and Country Club.

A 2013 graduate of SMC, Geyer turned in scores of 67-67-68-67 for a 72-hole score of 269.  He finished four strokes behind Canadian Brad Clapp, who eagled the 72nd hole to shoot a final round 5-under 67 to finish 23-under par.  Geyer joined Albin Choi, Seath Lauer, Ryan Brehm, Charlie Bull and Chase Marinell in the runner-up position.

A native of Arbuckle, Calif., Geyer is a member of the Web.com Tour and was playing in his first Mackenzie Tour event.  He entered the final round among a dozen players in contention and showed his intention to move up the leaderboard with an eagle chip on the seventh hole to move to 4-under on the front nine.  

A bogey just before the turn could have meant disaster, but the 2013 West Coast Conference co-Player of the Year posted two birdies on the back nine - including the final hole - to finish at 5-under for the round and ensured a second place finish.
