Peters wins Blue Boy title with eagle

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - Dawson Peters of Kirkwood showed a real flair for the dramatic on Saturday.

Peters carded an eagle-2 on the first hole of a three-way playoff to claim medalist honors at the Blue Boy Invitational at The Rail Golf Course in Springfield, Ill.

Peters, Ben Epperly of Kirkwood and Peyton Keeffer of the University of Dubuque finished the 36-hole event in a three-way tie at 149 before Peters quickly ended the suspense.

The third-ranked Kirkwood Eagles won the championship by 16 shots with Peters, Epperly, Will Babcock, George Kalpakas and James Morgan all finishing in the top-7 in the standings. Kalpakas played as an individual and did not count in the team score.
