The Gustavus men’s golf team posted a 54-hole total of 298-298-283–879 to finish second at its own Bobby Krig Invitational, which wrapped up with 36 holes at Le Sueur Country Club on Monday. The Gusties’ final round total of 283 (+3) is the lowest single round team score in seven years and the eighth lowest round in the program’s history. Trevor Gervais led Gustavus individually as he finished fourth with a total of 72-75-70–217 (+5). Saint John’s edged the Gusties by four strokes (875) to win the team title, while Peyton Olson of UW-Stout was the medalist with a total of 215.
It was a breakthrough performance for Gervais, a sophomore from Fergus Falls, Minn., as he posted the lowest individual round of his career with a 70, the lowest 54-hole total of his career (217), and his first top five finish (4th).
Two other Gustavus golfers posted top 15 finishes and they were Coby Rowley, who tied for ninth playing for the Black team with a total of 71-75-74, and Tyler McMorrow, who placed 11th with a total of 79-70-72–221. Rowley also recorded career best 18-hole (71) and 54-hole (220) totals and registered his first career top ten finish.
Monday’s blistering final round of 283 included scores of even par 70 from Gervais and Simon Erlandson, a one-over 71 from Andrew Oakes and a two-over 72 from Tyler McMorrow. The team didn’t need to use a four-over 74 registered by Alex Kolquist.
The Black team finished eighth with a total of 308-305-298–911. Individual scores for the Black squad included Rowley (71-75-74–220), Alex Pederson (27th, 79-75-73–227), Matt Jensen (35th, 78-78-74–230), Alex Flasch (54th, 85-77-77–239), and Jon Husu (54th, 80-78-81–239).
Gustavus will take part in the Saint John’s Invitational, a 36-hole tournament this Friday and Saturday in Monticello and Saint Cloud.
