Starting the day tied for the lead, they made four birdies on the first nine holes before lightning suspended play three and a half hours. Upon resuming,  Lowestein birdied No. 13 and 15 to provided enough cushion for a two-stroke win.

Adam Arola of Keller GC and John Pavlko of Minnetonka GC were next at 130, followed by Jon and Michael DuToit of Chaska Town Course with 131.

Buege and Lowenstein are both sophomores-to-be on the University of Minnesota golf team. In high school, their teams, Rogers and Wayzata, tied for the state team championship in 2010.
