The Iowa men's golf team finished second at the LSU National Invitational held March 31 and Sunday at the University Club in Baton Rouge, La.

The Hawkeyes posted a 9-under 855 for the tournament, finishing two shots behind champion LSU.

The Hawkeyes held a six-shot lead after the first two rounds, but LSU's Austin Gutgsell fired a final-round 65 on the par-72 course. Gustgell claimed the individual championship and led the Tigers to a 9-under final round and the tournament title.

Iowa sophomore Steven Ihm was 3-under for the tournament β€” a total highlighted by an opening-round 67 β€” to lead Iowa. Barrett Kelpin and Ian Vandersee both posted 1-under scores to finish in a tie for seventh.

The Hawkeyes will compete in their only home event of the spring season on April 14-15, when they compete in the Hawkeye-TaylorMade Invitational at Finkbine. The Hawkeyes are looking for their third-straight championship at the event.
