NAPERVILLE, ILL. - Lakeland College's Beau Gundersen (So.-New Berlin, Wis.) finished in the top 15 to lead the Muskie men's golf team to a sixth-place finish at the Cress Creek Invitational at the Cress Creek Country Club on Monday.
Gundersen shot a score of 122 to finish 14 strokes over par, as the tournament was shortened to 27 holes due to daylight. He opened with a round of 83, putting him 16th after 18 holes, and then shot 39 on the final nine holes to finish tied for 13th individually.
