Gophers men’s golf team places sixth at Rod Myers Invitational golf tournament


Senior Donald Constable shot a final round two-under-par 70 as he finished four-under-par and tied for second place individually at the Rod Myers Invitational golf tournament in Durham, N.C.

Constable was tied for eighth place after two rounds, but a three-birdie, single-bogey final round propelled him into a tie for second, his lowest individual finish as a Gopher. Constable finished one stroke behind tournament champion Albin Choi of North Carolina State.

Sophomores Erik Van Rooyen and David Haley Jr. fired three-round totals of four and five-over-par respectively, as the Gophers finished sixth out of twelve teams at ten-over par.

The Gophers have improved by fourteen stokes in each of their three tournaments to start the year, scoring 38 over-par at the Gopher Invitational, 24 over-par at the Windon Memorial, and 10 over-par in Durham. 

Iowa finished the weekend at 13 under-par and won their third-consecutive tournament after finishing sixth at the Gopher Invitational.  The Hawkeyes led for the entirety of the tournament and had six-individual rounds of under-par golf. 

N.C State finished second at eight-under-par followed by Charlotte at four-under, Michigan at three-under and Duke at two-over. 

The Gophers next tournament is the Cal-Berkeley Invitational Oct. 18-19.
