Dooley leads U at Windon

Senior Adam Dooley fired a 136 through 36 holes to win the individual title and help the 13th-ranked Gophers men’s golf team to the championship in the Windon Memorial Classic on Tuesday.
Originally, the event was scheduled for 54 holes, but rainy conditions forced the event to be shortened. Dooley carded rounds of 69 and 67 to finish one stroke ahead of Luke Donald of Northwestern.
Minnesota shot 1-under-par 577, three strokes ahead of Northwestern, to claim the team title.
Sophomore James McLean and junior Martin LeMesurier shot 2-over to tie for 11th place. Senior Bill Thompson recorded rounds of 75 and 76 to finish in a tie for 31st. Senior Jeff Barney finished nine-over and in a tie for 39th.
Dooley is the third Gophers golfer to win a tournament in the team’s last four starts. McLean won the NCAA title last spring and Thompson was the medalist at the Northern Intercollegiate at Les Bolstad Golf Course Sept. 19.
Minnesota earned its 11th championship and 37th top-five finish in the program’s last 55 tournaments. The Gophers will wrap up their fall season at the Missouri Bluff’s Intercollegiate in St. Louis, Mo. on Oct. 10-12.
Fuller Fined
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Playing in the NFL is getting to be a costly proposition for Corey Fuller.
The league slapped Fuller with a $20,000 fine Wednesday for his jaw-breaking hit on Green Bay backup quarterback Doug Pederson late in the Minnesota Vikings’ 37-24 victory on Monday night.
It is the third fine in four seasons for Minnesota’s hard-hitting left cornerback, who now has paid a total of $57,500 in fines. Fuller was informed of the latest penalty in a telephone conversation with Gene Washington, the NFL’s director of football operations.
“It’s cool,” said Fuller, who was clearly disappointed by the ruling. “I talked with Gene Washington directly, and I’m all right.”
