Men’s Golf Finishes Season with First Place Finish at Bobby Krig Invite

Posted on May 5th, 2019 by


LE SUEUR, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s golf team concluded their 2019 season on Saturday afternoon when they tied for first in the Bobby Krig Invite. The Gusties shot a 593 in two days, to tie with UW-Eau Claire.

“It was a great weekend for a number of reasons,” said Head Coach Scott Moe. “First and foremost we got to celebrate the final rounds of the collegiate careers of Blake [Heiman] (Sr., River Falls, Wis.) and Thomas [Carlson] (Jr., Plymouth, Minn.). These two have given their heart and soul to the program and their teammates, and for that we are very thankful. The team put together a great final day, Ben [Hauge] (Jr., Ramsey, Minn.) birdied his last three for a 69 and Max [Ullan] (So., Blaine, Minn.) birdied his final two for a 70. Ben and Jacob [Pedersen] (Fy., Minnetonka, Minn.) both shot super well to tie for second overall and we tied a very strong Eau Claire team to finish first for the first time this season. It’s always tough to finish without advancing to the postseason but we couldn’t be more proud of the effort and how this group practiced and competed like a team. That was all possible because of great leadership from our captains Blake and Ben. Ben and Jacob had outstanding years for us, posting scoring averages of 73.3 and 74.1 and should garner some post season recognition.”

Hauge and Pedersen paced the Gusties both shooting 147 to tie to for second place while Ullan was right behind them in fourth in with a 149. The Gusties entered day two trailing the Blugolds by five strokes and Hauge and Ullan shot 69 and 70 respectively to lead the charge back. Joe Foley (Jr., East Gull Lake, Minn.) and Carlson rounded out the Gustavus five with scores of 155 and 157.

The Gusties also had four players golf as individuals with Carter Czichotzki (So., Moorhead, Minn.) leading the way with a 152 while Sam [Skaar] (Fy., Bovey, Minn.) trailed him with a 153. Christian Thoen (Jr., Dawson, Minn.) shot a 165 for the Gusties while Blake Heiman shot a 75 on day one while not competing in day two.
