MISSOULA- Ryan Porch of Glacier High School followed up a 70 with a 67 to win the Great Falls Golf Invitational on Tuesday, and that makes him our Athlete of the Week.
Porch doesn't have to look far for good competition, with his friend and Wolfpack teammate Logan Iverson taking second in Great Falls. And he's always in a fight for first with Porch.
"It's definitely competitive, especially when we get into tournaments. We always do competitions when we're playing. Like hey, first one to three up on the putting green. We're best friends, so we get to spend a lot of time together. And golfing, as competitive as we are we both want to win a lot. And so, it's fun," Porch observed.
"Even when you're going out there just for nine holes, definitely want to beat him. He's my best friend, but it's competitive. Definitely want to beat him every time I'm out there. But in the summer, we push each other a lot. We're with each other almost every day," Iverson added.
