TCU men’s golfer Gustav Frimodt secured a victory at the Ben Hogan Collegiate Invitational, the first of his career. Fridmodt led the Horned Frogs to a ninth-place team ranking.

The Horned Frogs tied with Georgia Tech for 10th place out of 16 teams present on Oct. 3.

The Ben Hogan Collegiate Invitational is a two-day tournament held on Oct. 3 and Oct. 4 at the Colonial Country Club. The tournament hosts 13 of 25 top teams from across the country.

Frimodt, Jacob Skov Olesen, Aymeric Laussot, Ethan Dial and Brandon Massey represented TCU in the tournament. 

“Well it seems like the kids are really working hard,” said men’s head coach Bill Montigel. “I feel like we got a chance to have a really good team. We’re all really excited about the upcoming schedule we got, we’re going to some great tournaments. I think that as the year goes on we will continue to get better.” 

Frimodt made a career-best at Colonial. He tied for seventh place at three strokes under par, representing TCU in the top 10. Olesen was just two shots behind Frimodt and tied for 12th place. 

On Tuesday, Oct. 4, Frimodt improved on his performance the day prior and won the Ben Hogan Collegiate Invitational. He competed against 15 of the top 30 amateur golfers in the world.

Frimodt tied a career-low versus par with shots of 5-under 65 and 8-under 202.

The Horned Frogs finished the tournament tying with No. 10 Florida and Oregon finishing in 9th place at 11-over 851.

Frimodt waited for William Mouw of Pepperdine in the clubhouse at 8-under overall. With 6 holes remaining, the 22nd-ranked amateur in the world tied Frimodt. 

Olesen, who tied for 8th place at 3-under 207, also placed in the top 10. He secured his lowest score ever at Colonial by six strokes. 

He shot a 2-under 68 to match his opening round. Olesen played every hole until No. 9 in par, just like Frimodt.

At 15-over 825, No. 13 North Carolina kept its lead to win the tournament.
