Posted on April 3rd, 2021 by


Ironwood, Ill. – The Gustavus men’s golf team closed out the weekend at Illinois Wesleyan tying in sixth place out of 20 teams on Saturday posting a 310-307-617. Illinois Wesleyan won the event with a 283-299-582.

Jacob Pedersen (Jr., Minnetonka) led the squad carding a 78-69-147 to finish tied in sixth place overall out of 110 competitors. Wyatt Wasko (So., Lake Elmo) carried over his momentum from the day prior recording a 74-79-153 and tying in 18th. Tommy Hinker (Fy., Edina) posted a 77-81-158 in his collegiate debut, followed by Andrew Hoppe (So., Mankato) with a  81-78-159. Sam Skaar (Jr., Bovey) rounded out the scores with an 85-86-171 finish.

“I thought the conditions were quite a bit tougher today and more windy,” said Head Coach Scott Moe “Our guys battled hard and put up better numbers than yesterday. Jacob had an outstanding round, he just put himself in good position and had a couple of putts fall today that didn’t fall yesterday. Very pleased with the overall effort of all eight players. We continue to learn as we move ahead and are looking forward to another opportunity next weekend at Emerald greens.”
