RAMSEY, Minn. – Alec Aunan (Jr., Rock Island, Ill.) shot a career-best round of 67 (-5) in the first round of the Twin Cities Classic on Saturday at The Links at Northfork, leading the field of 91 golfers. Aunan’s round of 67 is tied for the third lowest round in program history. The Gustavus men’s golf team shot a collective 283 (-5) and is tied for first place with Saint John’s, while the University of Manitoba is in third place with a 292 (+4).

“It was a good opening round today, we really had it going through 14 or 15 holes and then coughed up a couple coming down the stretch, but anytime you are under par as a team, you did a lot of good things,” Head Coach Scott Moe said. “Alec was awesome today. He bogeyed his last two to fire 67, and he could have been a few lower, but it was fun to watch.”

Max Savini (So., Ramsey, Minn.) is tied for third place after carding a two-under par 70. Chris Captain (Jr., Rochester, Minn.) and Ben Hauge (Fy., Ramsey, Minn.) both fired one-over par 73, while Sam Majka (Sr., Wayzata, Minn.) rounded out the Gusties with a 76.

“Max battled hard for a 32 on the back to post a 70,” Moe said. “We had to play well because Saint John’s matched our 283 today, it was fun.”

The Twin Cities Classic resumes tomorrow at the Elk River Golf Course.

“Elk River presents a completely different game, shorter shots and much smaller greens, a great contrast and will be a good test,” Moe said. “Looking forward to another opportunity to play.”
