JORDAN, Minn. – After round one of three at the Bobby Krig Invitational, the Gustavus men’s golf team sits in fourth place out of 16 teams, shooting a 298 (+10), which was played at Ridges at Sand Creek. Saint John’s and Illinois Wesleyan lead the field, both shooting a first round score of 291 (+3). Augsburg is in third place with a 294, while Saint John’s B and Gustavus are tied for fourth.

Chris Captain (Jr., Rochester, Minn.) leads the Gusties after carding an even-par 72 and sits in a tie for fifth place, five strokes behind the leader, Sam Olson of Saint John’s. Three golfers are tied for second place, each shooting a three-under 69.

Ben Hauge (Fy., Ramsey, Minn.) and Alex Koopmeiners (Sr., St. Cloud, Minn.) are tied for 10th, both carding a 74, while Alec Aunan (Jr., Rock Island, Ill.) is tied for 39th at 78 and Sam Majka (Sr., Wayzata, Minn.) is tied for 60th with an 82. Thomas Carlson (Fy., Plymouth, Minn.) leads the Gustavus B team, tied for 34th after shooting a 77.

“We had an ok day today, but we need to be sharper tomorrow,” Head Coach Scott Moe said. “Chris rallied to fire even which was great, and Koop and Ben threw in a pretty good number as well. This is a great field of teams and with 36 holes tomorrow anything can happen. We will need to be focused and ready to play, if so, good things will happen.”

Round two begins at 8 a.m. tomorrow with the third round immediately following. All 36 holes will be played at the Le Sueur Country Club.
