Max Noffsinger tied the University of Jamestown men's golf record for the lowest 54-hole score, and the Jimmies finished with their third-best 54-hole team score as the NW Iowa Collegiate Invite concluded on Tuesday.

Noffsinger shot a 3-under 69 Tuesday to finish at 2-under 214 (74-71-69), tying the record set by Tate Olson at the Yellowjacket Fall Invitational in 2018-19. Noffsinger finished the tournament in seventh place, one of eight golfers to finish under par.

The Jimmies' team score of 23-over 887 (302-295-290) was good for third place, 20 shots behind Iowa Central CC and 43 shots behind Iowa Western CC. The score of 887 is the third-best 54-hole score in program history, behind the 1-under 863 in 2018-19 and the 18-over 882 in 2017-18.

"I'm incredibly proud of our guys for bouncing back their final four rounds of the fall season after a rough first round at conference two weeks ago," said Jimmie head coach Zach Hale.

Olson (77-75-72) and Jackson Worner (74-74-76) tied for 18th at 8-over 224, as did Tomas Garcia (78-76-70), playing as an individual. Treyton Forsman (79-75-73) tied for 29th at 11-over 227, and Benjamin Schaefer, playing individually, tied for 35th at 15-over 231 (81-77-73). Gehrig Geiss finished 54th at 24-over 240 (77-83-80).
