COON RAPIDS, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s golf team dropped into second place at the MIAC Championships Sunday, not because of a poor score but because Saint John’s posted a low round of 284. After two rounds the Johnnies sit in first place with 582, while the Gusties are in second with a 599 (302 in round two). Bethel is in third place with a 605.

“The crazy thing about the sport of golf is when another team plays great there’s nothing you can do about it except sit back and watch,” Head Coach Scott Moe said. “Saint John’s had a fantastic day today; 284 is a great score.”

Alec Aunan (Jr. Rock Island, Ill.) fired a team-low score of 72 today and is tied for seventh place with a 150. Chris Captain (Jr., Rochester, Minn.) carded a 75 today and leads the Gusties with a 147, which is tied for third place. Ben Hauge (Fy., Ramsey, Minn.) shot a 76 and is in 11th place, Max Savini (So., Ramsey, Minn.) posted a 79 and is tied for 12th place, while Sam Majka (Sr., Wayzata, Minn.) tallied an 81 and is tied for 27th.

“We struggled out of the gates today in making putts, just couldn’t get any to fall,” Moe said. “The early holes on this golf course are the ones you need to make a few birdies on. It was nice to see Alec post a good score like we know he can. Chris had a solid day, just didn’t get any putts to drop. We’re looking forward to firing some birdies early in the round and have it feed us the rest of the way.”

The third and final round begins at 9 a.m. tomorrow. The Gusties begin to tee off at 10:20 a.m.
