ASU men's golf finishes second at the Marquette Intercollegiate

For their second straight tournament, the Sun Devils fall short, finishing second

The ASU men's golf team finished second behind Northwestern in the Marquette Intercollegiate at Erin Hills on Tuesday.

Northwestern battled back from a 4-stroke deficit through two rounds, rallying as a team to shoot a team-wide 12-under-par final round to finish two strokes ahead of ASU. The host school, Marquette, finished third, which was 10 strokes behind the leader at 4-over-par.

Junior Alex Del Rey led the Sun Devils, posting every round below par during the tournament and finishing at a team best 7-under-par. His 7-under finish also earned him a second place finish individually, as he ended the tournament just behind Northwestern's Ryan Lumsden.

ASU's lineup fielded freshmen Cameron Sisk and Davis Evans, sophomore Mason Andersen and juniors with Del Rey and Blake Wagoner. Freshman James Leow competed individually at the tournament, finishing T-50 (+11).

Wagoner finished his tournament with the best single round of any Sun Devil with a 4-under-par showing on Tuesday to finish T-9th at an even-par 216 (73-75-68). One stroke behind Wagoner was teammate Mason Andersen at 1-over-par.

Erin Hills featured eleven schools this weekend, including Northwestern, Arizona State, Marquette, Ole Miss, Iowa, Minnesota, UC Davis, Utah, Wisconsin, Michigan State and McNeese State.

The Sun Devils travel to Fairfax, California, to compete in the Alister Mackenzie Invitational on Oct. 8-9, a tournament the Sun Devils won in 2016.
