Auburn wins the Maui Jim Intercollegiate

AUBURN, Ala (EETV) - The No. 6 tigers emerged victorious in the Maui Jim Intercollegiate after shooting 56 strokes under par, a school record.

Jackson Koivun, a freshman who led the Tigers over the weekend, finished second on the individual title and shot a (-6) in his final round. Koivun's weekend score of 17-under for the tournament tied the program record for a 54-hole individual score.

"Really good to come out of the gate hot and get the team win," Koivun said. "We all played well this week. It was a total team victory. I'm looking forward to the next event and picking up where we left off."

Koivun finished just one shot back of the individual title, which was won by Justin Hastings of San Diego State at 18-under 195.

The Tigers had three top-ten finishers, including Koivun, J.M. Butler (-13) and Brendan Valdes (-12). Carson Bacha (-10) and Ryan Eshleman (-10) tied for 13 to put all Tigers in the top 15.

"It's always a great feeling when you can start your season out with a huge win," Tigers head coach Nick Clinard said. "We knew we had the depth and the talent to win championships with this roster, and this is our proof. We're going to celebrate this win momentarily and then get right back and work on improving ourselves for the next one."

Auburn heads to the SEC fall preview next from Sept. 25-27 at the County Club of Birmingham in Birmingham, Alabama.
