Men’s Golf Finishes Saint John’s Invite in Second Place Posted on September 30th, 2018 by


SARTELL, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s golf team finished play at the Saint John’s Invite on Sunday in second place. The Gusties score of 593 was just seven strokes behind the winner, Saint John’s.

Max Ullan (So., Blaine, Minn.) had a very good day for the Gusties by shooting a 70 and earning himself medalist honors. Ben Hauge (Jr., Ramsey, Minn.) posted a 72 on day two and put himself in a tie for third place overall, while Jacob Pederson (Fy., Minnetonka, Minn.) shot a 77 and placed himself in a tie for fifth. Thomas Carlson (Jr., Plymouth, Minn.) also had a very good tournament for the Gusties, as he tied for 19th place.

On the round, coach Randy Stuckey said, “We came out today not striking the ball very well and had trouble getting used to the speed of the greens. The field got tight after the first nine but the guys toughed it and got themselves in contention with Saint John’s on the back. It was nice to have three people finish in the top five and having Max Ullan be a medalist. This weekend should provide some confidence for the men going forward as we have a big preparation week ahead of us for the MIAC Championship.”

On Saturday, the Gusties will begin play in the MIAC Championship in Jordan, Minn.
