Senior Erik Van Rooyen, the reigning Big Ten Conference Player of the Week, opened with a two-over par 73, as did freshman Jon DuToit. Both players are tied for 17th place, four shots off the lead. Van Rooyen and DuToit are first and second, respectively, on the Gophers in stroke average on the season.
