Former Blaine standout golfer Ryan Wallen finished tied for second with Taylor Montgomery at the Rocky Mountain Open Sunday on the Tiara Roado Golf Course in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Wallen, a graduate of the University of Wyoming, shot a final-round best 63 (8-under) Sunday to finish the three-day tournament 13-under – just 2 strokes behind winner Justin Kelley. Wallen had only one bogey in his final two rounds against 12 birdies and one eagle, as he earned $4,400.

The second-place finish comes just over a month after his first professional win at the Laramie (Wyoming) Open on July 15-16. He placed 10th in his professional debut Wyoming Open July 7-9 in Cheyenne.
