PALM DESERT, Calif. - After just one round complete, the efforts of Kory Harrell and Mike Sorenson put the Rams in fifth place in the 20-team field at the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate. Due to darkness the second round was unable to be completed.
After the first round Harrell and Mike Sorenson shot an even-par 72 and are tied for fourth with the second round set to be completed Sunday at 8 a.m. MST.
The Rams acquired Mike Sorenson at semester. He is a transfer from Wisconsin competing in his first tournament for the Rams. His brother, Steve Sorenson, is competing as an individual in the tournament.
Harrell and Mike Sorenson's efforts, along with the rest of the team, puts CSU in fifth place with a 300 (+12). Texas A&M is just six strokes away in first place with a 294 (+6).
The rest of the team was farther back in the standings. Ryan Peterson shot a 5-over-par 77 putting him in a tie for 43rd. Kirby Pettitt was 7-over-par carding a 79, which leaves him tied for 66th. Zahkai Brown shot a 12-over-par 84 putting him in a tie for 93rd.
"We got off to a slow and shaky start in the morning round," said Head Coach Jamie Bermel. "Several penalty strokes and very tentative play."
The Rams will look to move forward in the standings Sunday morning. The final round will be played immediately following the conclusion of the second round.
