KENNESAW, Ga. -- Gonzaga men's golfer David Ganz tied for fifth at the Pinetree Intercollegiate hosted by Kennesaw State at the Pinetree Country Club Tuesday.

After carding a 69 (-3) in the first round Monday, Ganz was three-over (75) in the second and final round Tuesday. He had a two-day total of 144 and finished even-par in the tournament. He made four birdies in Round 2, ending the event with eight, the second-most in the 61-golfer field. The senior went five-under on the course's Par-5 holes, an average of 3.75 on those holes, matching the best outcome on Par-5 holes in the tournament. It was his first top-10 collegiate finish.

Ben DuBois made 12 pars and two birdies in the second round, finishing with a 74 (+1). He ended the event at three-over (147) in 14th place. DuBois was one-under (3.90) on Par-4 holes in the tournament.

Nick Nolan tied for 30th at nine-over (153). Following a 78 (+6) Monday, he carded a 75 (+3) in Round 2. Tyler Munetake had another round of 77 (+5), after a 77 in Round 1. He tied for 36th at 10-over (154). Both Nolan and Munetake made four birdies in the second round.

Chris Mogg also had four birdies Tuesday, finishing with a 79 (+7). He tied for 50th at 15-over (159).

The Zags tied for sixth place in the 11-team field. GU was 13-over (301) on Day 2. The Bulldogs were 22-over (598) in the tournament.

"The course played tougher today with higher winds and playing the ball down after the course dried out after yesterday's heavy rain," GU Head Coach Robert Gray said. "David put together a decent round in the tougher conditions to post his highest collegiate finish. Ben came in with another solid round to post his highest collegiate finish, as well. Both played steady this week and continue to gain more consistency as the season progresses.

"We did a good job of competing both rounds mentally. We’re still struggling with making big numbers but we’re very close to putting it all together as a team. We’d be a tough match play team right now, playing 15 or 16 holes even or under and having big numbers on the remaining two or three holes. As we tighten that area up, we’ll continue to climb the leaderboard. Once again, I’m pleased with how the team competed and kept a great mental attitude all week, even during those holes that didn’t go as planned."

Southern Illinois held off Wisconsin and Kennesaw State by a stroke for the team title. SIU was seven-over (583) in the 36-hole event. Southern Illinois' Peyton Wilhoit took medalist honors at seven-under (137).

Gonzaga plays in the Ka'anapali Classic Collegiate for the fourth straight year Nov. 3-5. The fourth annual event is being played on the Royal Ka'anapali Course in Lahaina, Hawaii. Live scoring will be available on GoZags.com.
