JORDAN, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s golf team moved up to fourth place after day two of the MIAC Championships Sunday, hosted at Ridges at Sand Greek. The Gusties turned in a score of 308 (+19), and is 19 strokes behind the leader, the University of St. Thomas. Augsburg University and Saint John’s University remain ahead of Gustavus in second and third.

Despite dropping two strokes after firing an even-par 72 yesterday, Alec Aunan (Sr., Rock Island, Ill.) moved up from fourth place to the top of the leaderboard and is tied for first place after firing a 74. Chris Captain (Sr., Rochester, Minn.) remains tied for sixth, also dropping two strokes as he carded a 75. Ben Hauge (So., Ramsey, Minn.) shot an 80 and is tied for 26th, while Carter Czichotzki (Fy., Moorhead, Minn.) duplicated his round one score of 79 (t-28th) and Max Ullan (Fy., Blaine, Minn.) an 79 (t-30th).

“Considering how bad the weather was when we started playing today in heavy rains, I thought we came out of the blocks pretty good,” said Head Coach Scott Moe. “We had about an hour and a half rain delay and I think that got to a couple of our guys, as we struggled a bit on the greens. However, we played the difficult stretch of the course much better than we did yesterday. We battled hard and finished with a decent score today to climb up on the leaderboard.”

The third and final round begins with a shotgun start tomorrow morning at 9 a.m.

“We will go out tomorrow with the mindset to continue to climb. Alec and Chris have put together two really solid rounds so far,” Moe commented.
