Men’s Golf Wins Home Spring Invite

Posted on May 4th, 2018 by


LE SUEUR, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s golf team won its first home meet of the spring season Friday at the Le Sueur Country Club. The Gusties carded a 291 (+11), seven strokes ahead of second place St. Thomas, who is ranked first in the nation according to the Golfstat Top 25 ranking.

Alec Aunan (Sr., Rock Island, Ill.) took second place on the par 70 course, shooting a one-over 71. Ben Hauge (So., Ramsey, Minn.) was a stroke behind to tie for third place. Chris Captain (Sr., Rochester, Minn.) placed sixth with a score of 73. Max Ullan (Fy., Blaine, Minn.) and Joe Foley (So., East Gull Lake, Minn.) rounded out the top team with scores of 75 and 77, respectively. Christian Thoen (Dawson, Minn.) led the second team, posting a 72 to tie for third place.

“It was fun to get a home event in the spring,” Head Coach Scott Moe said. “Le Sueur did a fantastic job and getting the golf course in great condition. The guys played pretty solid all day. The wind picked up on the back nine and we grinded pretty well to finish out the round. Alec birdied his final three holes to shoot 71. Ben fired a 72 with two balls out of bounds. Chris fired a great 34 on the front nine. All in all, it was a very good day. Any time you can beat the number one team in the country, you have to play well. St Thomas has a great team and we wish them the best of luck as they head off to nationals. Looking forward to our final date of competition tomorrow at New Prague.”

The Gusties host their final meet of the season Saturday at New Prague Golf Course – another one-round event.
