University of Minnesota men’s golf senior Alex Gaugert earned the second top-10 finish of his career, placing ninth with a personal-best score of 209 (-7) at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational in Sonoma, Calif. The Golden Gophers (-7) finished ninth, going under par as a team for the first time since the 2010 MacKenzie Invite.

Gaugert was under par in all three rounds, highlighted by a career-low 67 in Round 2. He led the field in par-5 scoring (-11). Freshman Jose Mendez posted the Gophers’ best Tuesday score, a 2-under 70. Senior Jon Trasamar (+1) and sophomore Jon DuToit (+2) were close behind, with Tyler Lowenstein (+7) rounding out the Gophers’ roster.

“Even though we would have like to beat some of the teams in that middle group, we played better than our ninth-place finish shows,” head coach John Carlson said. “Alex’s finish, in this competitive field, is one of the best we’ve had in the past few years. Jose had two really good rounds, too. Overall, everyone contributed and I hope we can carry that momentum forward as we travel to New Jersey this weekend.”

California (-39) won the tournament by 22 strokes over second-place UC-Davis. The Golden Bears’ Joel Stalter captured medalist honors with a 13-under score of 203.
