Justin Doeden capped his collegiate golf career with a tie for 23rd place at the NCAA Stanford Regional. The University of Minnesota senior had a 54-hole score of 213, 3 over par, at Stanford Golf Course.
Doeden posted a 2-over 72 on Wednesday, starting his round on the 10th hole. After going 3 over on the first two holes, he made six consecutive pars before a bogey on 9.
For the second day in a row, Doeden started to heat up after the turn. He made birdies on three of the next five holes, including a 19-foot putt on the par-3 fourth hole. Doeden parred his last four holes.
Doeden turned in a season scoring average of 71.79, fourth-best in program history. He led the Gophers with 14 rounds under par this year.
