KAHUKU, O`ahu- The Colorado State men's golf team fell one spot to seventh place in the final round of the 36th annual John A. Burns Intercollegiate Friday. Freshman Cameron Harrell tied in fourth place, a career-best finish.
Harrell shot a 2-under-par 70 in the final round to combine for a 70-72-70--212 (-4). His previous career-best finish was a tie in 26th place at the Gene Miranda Invitational earlier this season in Colorado Springs, Colo.
The young gun showed consistency on the Turtle Bay Resort's Arnold Palmer Course, something Head Coach Jamie Bermel was looking for.
"Cameron played real steady today," said Bermel. "It was windier than yesterday and he was real patient. He just kept makings pars and a pair of birdies."
In the 105-man field, Senior Zahkai Brown fell to a shared spot at 23rd with a 71-68-78--217 (+1). Senior Michael Wuertz tied in 27th place with a 72-71-75--218 (+2). Junior Mike Sorenson tied in 46th place carding a 74-73-76--223 (+7).
Junior Kirby Pettitt rounded out the Rams lineup with a 74-73-81--228 (+12) and tied in 60th place.
The Rams dropped one spot on the leaderboard to seventh place in the 18-team field. The team combined for a 287-284-299--870 (+6). The Cal Bears captured the team title for the second straight year with an 874 (-17). UNLV and Duke tied for second with an 854 (-10).
Julian Suri of Duke took home the individual title with his 11-under 65-70-70--205 performance. Max Homa of Cal placed second with a 66-71-72--209 (-7).
Coach Bermel was looking for a better performance from his team.
"I was very disappointed in the other four guys today," said Bermel. "They just did not play well and kept making careless mistakes. We need to get back and get that corrected before our next tournament."
The Rams will head to Bradenton, Fla., for the Callaway Match Play on March 18th.
