Men’s Golf In Fourth Place After Round One At Saint John’s Invite

Posted on April 29th, 2018 by


MONTICELLO, Minn. – After a rough front nine Sunday, the Gustavus men’s golf team got back on track on the back nine to card a first round total of 304 at the Saint John’s Spring Invitational. The Gusties are seven strokes off the lead, which is held by host Saint John’s at 297.

“The guys got off to a horrible start today shooting 25-over par on the front nine then going two-over on the back,” Assistant Coach Randy Stuckey said. “We had a little discussion on the course and played better after that. One of our main focuses is to finish each round, specifically the last four holes. I was extremely pleased with our effort as we went two-under as a team over our last four holes. The key to tomorrow’s round will be getting off to a good start and finishing like today.”

Ben Hauge (So., Ramsey, Minn.) led the Gusties in the first round with a score of 74 and is currently tied for sixth. Chris Captain (Sr., Rochester, Minn.) fired a 76 and is tied for 16th. Both Alec Aunan (Sr., Rock Island, Ill.) and Max Ullan (Fy., Blaine, Minn.) posted scores of 77, and Joe Foley (So., East Gull Lake, Minn.) rounded out the team with a 78. Thomas Carlson (So., Plymouth, Minn.) is competing as an individual and carded a 77 to sit in a tie for 22nd.

The second round begins at 10 a.m. tomorrow at Territory Golf Club.
