Gueant Named Pac-12 Men’s Golfer of the Month
Following back-to-back top-5 finishes and a record-setting round, Tom Gueant earned Pac-12 Men's Golfer of the Month honors for March, the conference announced Thursday.
Gueant posted a 70.11 scoring average over nine rounds in March and has shot par or better in five of his last six rounds with three of those in the 60s. He tied the program record-low round with an 8-under 62 in the final round of The Goodwin last week, becoming just the fourth player in Oregon history to shoot a 62 (Brandon McIver – 2015, Daniel Miernicki – 2011, Derek Sipe – 2007).
The Frenchman came in tied for third in each of Oregon's last two events, both of which matched his career-best finish as a Duck. He shot 3 under at the Duck Invitational from March 22-23, before finishing 9 under and just a shot behind the winners at The Goodwin later that week. Gueant held the lead for a good portion of the final round at The Goodwin following his record-tying round after posting 9 under for the week, before two individuals passed him and finished 10 under.
Gueant leads the team with a 71.61 scoring average for the year and has posted three top-10 finishes in his last four starts. He has delivered a counting score for the Ducks in all but two of his 18 rounds this season and has shot under par in six of the last 12 rounds dating back to the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate in mid-February.
This is the first time in his career that Gueant has won the monthly award, while he is also the first Oregon player since Wyndham Clark in 2017 to be named the conference's men's golfer of the month.
